Born To Hand Jive: Cha Cha From 'Grease' Dies At 63

Annette Charles, who tore up the dance competition during "Born To Hand Jive" as Cha Cha DiGrigorio—"the best dancer at St. Bernadette’s"—in 1978's classic Grease, has died from cancer, TMZ reports. She was 63 and man, did she age well, huh? After retiring from acting, Charles became a speech professor at California State University Northridge.

Of course, at the end of May, we also lost Jeff Conaway, who starred as Kenickie in the film, starring starring Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta. R.I.P.
