Image 8 of 31


This picture is from an American Bandstand yearbook. I enlarged it and added the colorful frame. Charlette Russo danced on American Bandstand as a Regular in the mid to late 1950s. She is one of the very early Regulars who was actually dancing on American Bandstand before it went National in August 1957. She continued dancing on the show in the late 1950s.

Charlette is to the far right in above picture.

Above picture is from one of the American Bandstand yearbooks and shows Charlette Russo with Dick Clark on Valentine's Day. When I met Charlette many years later, she autographed one of my several yearbooks with this picture. I added the little red hearts frame around this picture.

Charlette is in the stripped top and black skirt around center of the front row.
