In the movie, does anyone know who the dancer is at :47-:57, 1:19-:46 and 6:01-21?

Pretty, great costume (i.e. legs) and one Helluva dynamic performance (her partner flips her around like a poker chip and she comes up with that killer smile every time).

Check out her facial expressions - great flirty looks at the band guys - she's into it ALL the way. Credits list the dancers as just "Xanadu dancer" and you'd think that since she had a large part (the centerpiece in that segment, to my mind), they would have identified her better. A fine, unidentified talent.

Really enjoy Xanadu and re-watched the scenes but there´s so many Xanadu dancers listed on IMDb it´s almost impossible to say who she is.

Maybe you have to give everyone a call? [Smile]

And btw, The Tubes just rocks!

aTomiK - Well, nothing from any of the boards, so the next step is to look up each female dance on the Internet and see if I strike gold.

I re-watched Xanadu a couple of months ago and it is a great film. However, I do admit that trying to pin-point a specific dancer from that sequence would be like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

Unless someone has a specific speaking role, they probably won't be identified by name in the credits. And, even if they're listed individually under a "dancers" category, it would be almost impossible to figure out which one they are that way either.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help...

I'm sure you already know this, but this film was released in 1980, so it was probably filmed in 1979 - almost 40 years ago. It's possible this woman is deceased at this point...just being realistic.

Indeed, I tried but came up with nothing. Another Tilt-At-Windmills effort. She caught my eye and I was just curious as to her career - she had much more to offer than the others.
