Tribute to Fred and Adele Astaire. The music is Rhapsody in Blue composed by George Gershwin. I selected this music because George Gershwin and Fred Astaire were good friends.

Lady Charles Cavendish, better known as Adele Astaire, was an American dancer and entertainer. She was Fred Astaire's elder sister. In 1905 Adele Astaire had a successful vaudeville act with her younger brother, Fred Astaire. They developed it into a celebrated adult career on Broadway and on the London stage. Adele was the bigger star of the two during their time performing together, and she was a special favorite of Great Britain's royalty. On May 9, 1932, after a successful stint with Fred in the revue The Band Wagon (1931) on Broadway, Adele Astaire retired from the stage to marry Lord Charles Arthur Francis Cavendish.
