"Dancing was fun; it didn't seem like a job but a party every day.Ó ÒThey practised dancing seriously; it was their life!Ó ÒIt is an ugly profession; to prostitute oneself... is a commonly accepted practice.Ó Glitz, glamour, and sleaze is what people may remember of the cabaret girls of yesteryear. With curiosity and an open mind, Adeline Foo sets out to uncover the lives of these women and how, even with few dreams and hopes to strive for, these women lived with much heart and courage despite society's disapproving eye. The music of the dance hall may have faded away, but this book carries the echoes of their dance steps, connecting us with a forgotten past that was inspired by faith, hope and charity.
