George Caddy and Mavis Lang entertained more sedate dancers at the famous Trocadero with this jitterbug display. By 1941, it was estimated that there were 5000 jitterbug dancers in Sydney and contests were held every Saturday night at the Trocadero in George Street. Jitterbugging was performed close to the Trocadero’s stage, where Dick Freeman’s orchestra would ‘hot up’ the music for the jitterbug crowd. Mavis taught tap-dancing and was an Australian jitterbug champion.
