Description
Dorothy "Gypsy Rhoumaje" Shaw (American: 07/11/1908 - ?) was a well-known dancer and actress from the Art Deco era. She pursued a career in the performing arts from an early age, working as a young teen in the Pantages Theater in Los Angeles before being discovered by an agent. She soon stablished herself as a sought-after comedic actress and a dancer in both the U.S. and abroad. She was best known for her self-styled dancing, choreographing numbers that borrowed from Hungarian, Burmese, and Latin American styles.
