I was a dancer a memoir
Pauline Fraser was a courageous young review artist and tap dancer—never missing a beat as she braved the dangers of the London Blitz.
Presenting Pauline is the story of one young woman’s courage as she witnessed her world slipping into a very dangerous era. She set out to be a tap dancer on the London stage, never dreaming that she would cross paths with some of the greatest military leaders of World War II, and many of Hollywood’s most brilliant stars. Most of all, Pauline never imagined that as a young review artist she would be tracking spies through the terrifying dark nights of the London Blitz. Being a real trooper, she kept her sense of humor. She never lost faith that she would survive, even as the city was crumbling around her! In 1945, she was swept off her feet by a handsome U.S. Army Air Force officer, and came to the United States on the first war brides’ ship following WWII. The couple lived in Chicago, where Pauline founded a neighborhood dance school. She later directed and produced very successful musical shows with a community theater group.
