AMERICAN EXPERIENCE

Henry Ford Gives Dance Lessons

  • Aired: 01/29/2013

  • Rating: NR
In the 1920s, many Americans were listening to Jazz and learning the Charleston. Henry Ford preferred the country dances he learned as a boy - quadrilles, gavottes, the schottische, the polka and the chorus jig were his favorites. Later in life he hosted dance lessons in Dearborn twice a week to teach what he believed was the correct, old way of dancing.
