(above) Michelle DellaFave (r.), who displayed plenty of fancy footwork as a longstanding member of both Dean’s Golddiggers and Dingaling Sisters, keeps up her craft, circa mid-’70s, with a lesson from her Mom (l., who danced professionally under the name Mae Blondell) in the same Bergenfield, NJ home studio where mother taught daughter her first steps and kicks.

(above) Lindsay Bloom (r.), a natural blonde who had the distinction of being the final gal to join The Dean Martin Show as one of The Dingaling Sisters, became a brunette for a time in the 1980s when she was recruited to play Mike Hammer’s vampy secretary, Velda, on CBS’ prime-time series based on the detective novels written by Mickey Spillane — and it was right around that period that this shot of Lindsay and her mom, Jeri (l.), was taken.
