Today is Rita Moreno's 81st Birthday! 


Musical lovers will remember her best as Anita in West Side Story (she won an Academy Award for it)… but did you know she hates watching herself dance "America!" She told Dance Teacher's Jenny Dalzell that she thinks her arms look flaccid! (Read Moreno's Q&A in DT's October 2011 here: http://www.dance-teacher.com/content/face-face-girl).


We think she looks pretty fantastic. Happy Birthday Rita!
