In partnership with Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI).


‘Top Hat’ – The 1935 classic stars Fred Astaire as a tap dance star trying to romance a reluctant Ginger Rogers aided by a memorable Irving Berlin musical score including classics like ‘Cheek to Cheek’.  The film was the most popular of all the films that showcases the style and sophistication of arguably the most famous dancing duo in film history.
