Dante's Poetry



This site is dedicated to the phenominal dance man Dante DiPaolo. Dante appeared in numerous movies, television shows, and stage productions, but to many Dante is the man who loved Rosemary Clooney for more than fifty years.

In the acknowledgements of her book Girl Singer she wrote, "my husband, Dante DiPaolo, without whom nothing would be possible." On her Girl Singer record, the one that featured Tony Bennett's pen-and-ink sketch, she added a note, "This album is dedicated to Dante, my last love, for all his kindnesses." He was her loving, lovable "Whirlwind"

On these pages you will find his biography, filmography, numerous photographs and even some video clips of this whirlwind dancer.
