Jeni LeGon

She began her dancing career partnering her older brother and a few years later, still in her teens, she was touring with a Whitman Sisters show. She was inspired by Alice Whitman and Jeni became very serious about her tap work. She developed into that rarity, a female tap soloist, regarded by many as one of the three or four best with Alice Whitman, Eleanor Powell and Ann Miller.

Jeni LeGon currently operates a dance studio in Vancouver.
