Santos Casani and Jose Lennard dance the Sugar Step in 1928

In 1928, dancers Santos Casani and Jose Lennard demonstrated the “Sugar Step” in an instructional video entitled “The Sugar Step Made Easy.”  That video has been made available for viewing on youtube by British Pathe:


The featured picture for this post is a screen grab from the video, listing the various steps demonstrated in the video.  I have reproduced it below:

It seems that Mr. Casani and Ms. Lennard were a well respected dancing pair in Great Britain.  A number of their instructional videos are available for viewing on the British Pathe channel.
