The Literary Dance Floor. Eartha Kitt teaching James Dean how to dance, early 1950s (Photo by Dennis Stock). “[James Dean] said to me, ‘I want to move like you, can you teach me how to move my body like you do on stage?’ And I told him where to meet me, here in New York and that’s where we met for dance classes.” Full article on Dancers Over 40. We are totally in favor of this (dancing over 40, that is).


James Dean is probably right in the middle (50 percent bro, 50 percent hipster) of the Hipster-Literary-Bro Continuum.
