    Dancer/choreographer/author/comedian Norma Miller died today. She was 99. Known as "The Queen of Swing," Miller was best known as a Lindy Hop dancer. The dance, named for aviator Charles Lindbergh, originated in Harlem and was largely improvisational. Miller performed with dance troupes in the US, Europe and South America and danced in six movies including Hellzapoppin' and the Marx Brothers' A Day At The Races. She was also a friend of Redd Foxx and appeared in several episodes of Sanford & Son.
