Dorothy Dale Kloss, (born October 27, 1923), began dancing when she was 3 years old. While working with a young Bob Fosse in a Chicago class, she won a tap contest and catapulted to stardom doing her own act at the Empire Room in Chicago. She toured the country from New York to California, and played Mexico City with the legendary Cantinflas.

She toured with Eddy Duchin until his orchestra was drafted during World War II, and then performed for the USO. In 1946 she became the hostess and dance instructor of television shows, broadcasting out of Chicago on WBKB.

She has performed with Liberace, The Mills Brothers, Mel Tormé, Harry Richman, Howard Keel, Kay Starr, Frankie Laine, and Chico Marx. She was accompanied by such bands as Ray Noble, Skinnay Ennis, Shep Fields and his “Rippling Rhythm,” to name a few.

Ms. Kloss is currently performing at the Plaza Theatremarker in Palm Springs, California, with the The Fabulous Palm Springs Follies, a vaudeville revue where she is a regular "Long-Legged Lovely", performing in ten shows weekly.
