More Song of Spain
We continue with the tale from the story card:
The choreographer had created white-hot flamenco dance moves for this show-stopping number, so difficult and daring that the twenty-four beautiful toreador dancers were complaining. But everyone gasped when the demanding choreographer told Gene to unfasten her mock skirt and re-attach it around her neck as amatador’s cape…while in full spin down a narrow, steep flight of slipper marble steps! “Impossible!”, “You’ll break an ankle!”, “Don’t do it, Gene!” cried the dancers, but Gene was silent. With a frown of concentration, she mounted the stairs and slowly, meticulously, worked out the necessary moves. After a long while Gene nodded and said, “I can do it!”
