Faith Bacon – 1929



Faith Bacon (born Frances Yvonne Bacon; 19th July 1910 – 26th September 1956) was an American burlesque dancer and actress. During the height of her career, she was billed as “America’s Most Beautiful Dancer” During her career, she used bubbles, flowers and fans in her nude dance routines. At the time, indecent exposure laws prohibited dancers from moving while appearing nude onstage. According to Bacon, she and Carroll tried several different tricks to get around these laws before finally coming up with the idea of the fan dance. The dance was an immediate hit. She danced regularly at New Amsterdam Theatre, New York where Olive Thomas danced and if one believes the stories Olive remains. This photograph is dated 1929
