Legs and Co

For the uninitiated (and, if so, how? Why?.. Please acquaint yourself with some of my favourite performances below.) Legs & Co were a dance troupe on the BBC’s Top of the Pops from 1976-1981. They followed on from the short-lived Ruby Flipper, and also from the legendary Pan’s People. Formed and choreographed by original Pan’s Person Flick Colby, Sue Menhenick (seen here second from the right) was the only member of all three troupes.

  1. I knew Pauline Peter’s from assembly rooms in surbiton, use to look after her kids in the creche while she took taught stretch classes, I would love to get to see her again, she was a good friend,

      1. You’re quite welcome. It was a very unfortunate loss. She was quite attractive and a very talented dancer. By the way, I am one of the founding members of the “Choreography by Flick Colby” Facebook group. We have very knowledgeable members who are quite familiar with Pan’s People and Legs & Co. history (as well as the Beat Girls and Go Jos), and try to keep up with current events regarding their respective members, including birthdays, etc. I assume you also had a hand in designing some of the imaginative and innovative costumes worn by the troupes during their performances and commend you accordingly.
