Wilson, Keppel and Betty
Wilson, Keppel and sometimes Betty were a popular British music hall act who capitalised on the trend for Egyptian imagery following the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun. Their stage act, called the "sanddance". was a ludicrous parody of "egyptian" postures, combined with references to Arabic costume. The lithe Wilson and Kepple would demonstrate their impressive suppleness in adopting wild angular gestures, while Betty watched their antics.
The people of South Shields are popularly referred to as "Sand-dancers" with reference to this act.

A longer, different version of the sand dance featuring more of Betty - actually Patsy Knox, grand-daughter of the original Betty! Still the same Wilson and Keppel though.
