she could dance like nobody's business

Lovely! Deanna was cute but sort of awkward when she first started out but she grew up to be so beautiful! So talented and has a wonderful voice! If you don`t have a cd of her singing, I highly suggest it. I do and it is great fun!

Hi Deanna: I have admired you since the 40`s. You were always my ideal. In fact I even had an appointment with Andre DiSegrola for a tryout. My goal was to be able to sing just like you. However I went into dancing and now I am teaching tap. Thanks for the memories.
