Clog dancer from Sheffield.

Son of Leo “George” Rhodes who also danced and from whom  learned the uncle of Gwen Naylor whom he taught and in fact may have been his only pupil.  Also a pianist.

He was able to recall a number of other dance champions:

Dan Leno
J.H. Burns
Tommy Royal
George Mackintosh
Pat Lannon
Martin Melia
