Jean Lankton As a teenager in the late 1960's Frank Vanderpuil was one of the regular dancers on the popular Saturday afternoon TV show, American Bandstand, hosted by the famous Dick Clark. Frank was a wonderful dancer and in 1967 he and his partner won the 1967 Dance Contest. They each won a color TV, a very big deal in 1967. His prominent dance style was California Swing which was beginning to fade in popularity by the next year. It was a joy to watch Frank dance and I and many others were stunned to learn he had passed away so young. Videos of Frank and other Bandstand dancers (including the '67 Dance Contest) are available for viewing on YouTube.
