Arlene Sullivan and Kenny Rossi danced together n American Bandstand for a little more than a year. At the height of their popularity, they received as many as 500 letters a day. Arelene, whose mother was a devoted fan, claims she danced on the show "to get my mother's attention." Within three months, Arlene was a regular appearing five days a week. "I was always surprised," she says," that people wanted my autograph. I danced on a TV show; nothing I did was different than kids were doing in their basements. But maybe that's why we were so popular. We were them, and they were us."
