Remembering That Time When Princess Diana Danced With John Travolta
The late Princess Diana made waves during an official White House visit in 1985 when she took to the dance floor with the King of disco dancing, John Travolta, for an unforgettable moment. The sight of the two iconic figures dancing together is still joyful 20 years after Diana’s death.
John Travolta has always recalled with fondness their moment together. “At midnight, I had to tap her on her shoulder, and I had to say, ‘Would you care to dance?’ She turned around and dipped her head in that Lady Diana way and we were off for 15 minutes dancing,”
Travolta continued, “I’ll never forget it. I’m honored that I was able to experience it, and I know for a fact that it was her favorite moment of being in the U.S. I feel I made her life better; she made my life better, and I’m sorry she’s not here.”
