Paulo and Paquita

Latin dance partners

Tim Carroll, Hennepin Theatre Trust Archivist:

Members of what we are naming “Lost Vaudeville,” little is known about Paulo and Paquita other than from listings in vintage advertisements and mentions in theater reviews from the Vaudeville era. Apparently known for their highly trained Latin dancing, this duo appeared regularly for a time and were considered a highlight of any given night’s revue. If you know more about this duo, please let us know!
