Astaire & Rogers, On Demand at Comcast

By Nicole Alexander, Communications Coordinator, Corporate Communications for Comcast Corporation

Before “Dancing with the Stars”, “America’s Best Dance Crew” and “So You Think You Can Dance,” there was Astaire-Rogers. Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers are among the most successful and well-known dancers in American history. Together, this dancing and acting duo made ten films. To this day, "Fred and Ginger" remains an almost automatic reference for any successful dance partnership. Many classical dancers and choreographers acknowledge their importance and influence on dance today. Now, you can see what they were all about – Comcast has ten films featuring Astaire and Rogers available now including, Shall We Dance, Swing Time and Top Hat. So check out the pair that has inspired the dance craze of today On Demand in the “Movies & Events” folder under “Movie Collections.”
