Bonus: The story behind Princess Diana’s dance with John Travolta.
It all happened at a ball at the White House that was hosted by President Ronald Reagan in 1985. Princess Diana was very happy because she was going to finally meet and dance with her “hero,” ballet dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov, whom she admired very much.
But her dream was never fulfilled. Nancy Reagan insisted that the first dance should be performed between Princess Di and actor John Travolta: “I didn’t know or expect to dance with Princess Diana, and it was the president’s wife, Nancy Reagan, that said, ‘It was her wish.’ At midnight, I had to tap her on her shoulder, and I had to say, ’Would you care to dance’.”
The world never saw Diana’s dance with Baryshnikov, but we definitely got another beautiful story.
