Missed this one completely. Was it on TV?

I didn't see it. NYC still had the Dime a Dance places in the 50's, but it had changed to a Dollar a Dance and that was too much for me to pay. I didn't know how to dance anyway.

Pretty good and a nice twist at the end.

Dime a dance places were still running in southeastern Michigan on the 1970's...I remember seeing an ad for hostesses under 'Help Wanted' in the Detroit Free Press when I was job hunting one summer while in college. I imagine they cost more than a dime by then.
