  Fred Astaire (born Frederick Austerlitz;[1] May 10, 1899 â June 22, 1987) was an American dancer, choreographer, singer, musician and actor.
His stage and subsequent film and television careers spanned a total of 76 years, during which he made 31 musical films and several award-winning television specials and issued numerous recordings. He was named the fifth Greatest Male Star of Old Hollywood by the American Film Institute. He is best known as the dancing partner and on-screen romantic interest of Ginger Rogers, with whom he co-starred in a series of ten Hollywood musicals which transformed the genre.
Gene Kelly, another major innovator in filmed dance, said that "the history of dance on film begins with Astaire." Beyond film and television, many noted dancers and choreographers, including Rudolf Nureyev, Sammy Davis, Jr., Michael Jackson, Gregory Hines, Mikhail Baryshnikov, George Balanchine, Jerome Robbins, and Madhuri Dixit, also acknowledged his importance and influence. Astaire ranks as the fifth greatest male star of Classic Hollywood cinema in AFI's 100 Years...100 Stars.
 
Jane Powell (born Suzanne Lorraine Burce; April 1, 1929) is an American singer, dancer, and actress.

Powell rose to fame as a singer in her home state of Oregon, and signed to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer while still in her teens. Once there, the studio used her vocal, dancing, and acting talents, casting her in such musicals as Royal Wedding with Fred Astaire, A Date with Judy with friend Elizabeth Taylor, and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers with Howard Keel. In the late 1950s, her film career slowed, only to be replaced with a busy theater and television career.
As of 2013, Powell lived with her fifth husband, former child star Dickie Moore (until his death in September 2015), in Manhattan and Wilton, Connecticut, and is still active in television and theater.
