Irma Washington

Irma Washington
Publicity photo of Irma Washington, a dancer in vaudeville who also appeared in film mostly uncredited. She was connected to many bands and jazz performers from the 1920’s to the 1940’s. She also had a high profile social life which made some of her activities off stage onto the social column in newspapers. She sang and danced at many private events when she was not on screen. She was a member of the “White Horse Riding Club” which was formed by the dancers at the The Cotton Club. [Tivoli Photo, Los Angeles]
