Dancing on wine bottles

You wouldn’t believe it until you saw it! Apparently 17 year old Bianca Passarge of Hamburg dressed up as a cat (occasionally), complete with furry tail and danced on wine bottles, June 1958.

Here’s the hard evidence from the BBC photo archive.

Her performance was based on a dream and she practiced for eight hours every day in order to perfect her dance.

    Family started wine bistro based on pic of Freulein Kraumpf(Bianca Passarge). Interesting that there are no other pictures of that day in 1958 other than this one. Would like to display more if anybody has knowledge of her or families whereabouts. The internet has left me hangin!
