Princess Vanessa Ammon (and the Nicholas Brothers)?

Recommended Posts

Here is a New Year quiz question, to which I however do not have the answer. Past postings show there are fans of the wonderful Nicholas Brothers on this Forum. In their film Tin Pan Alley, at the beginning of the brother's (might one call it ball-breaking?) routine, an exotic girl does an exotic dance. She is credited as "Princess Vanessa Ammon" but who was she? 


There is is no point in trying the Internet as there is apparently nothing online about her. I would love to know more. Perhaps those in the US familiar with the history of African American dance entertainers know something? 


Happy New Year!
