Your midday dance break: Ann Miller

Well, your midday watch-someone-else-dance-because-it’s-too-hot-to-move break. It’s the second scorcher in a row here in New York, and I’ve been singing this song – Cole Porter’s brilliant “Too Darn Hot” from Kiss Me, Kate – since I woke up yesterday.

Here’s Ann Miller’s rendition of the song, which includes some serious tapping and some minor stripping. Oh, and by the way, this sparkly pink number is pretty much exactly what we wear when we’re blogging. Obviously.


(Lyrics here.)

Stay cool today, folks.
