Juliet Prowse on The Muppet Show ( 1977 )

The talented dancer and actress Juliet Prowse was one of the many fine performers that appeared on The Muppet Show during its heyday in the 1970s. This show appealed to children because of its puppets, but the line-up of great guest stars attracted the adult audience, which the show was created for. 

In this clip from the April 25, 1977 episode of The Muppet Show, Juliet Prowse performs a lovely dance to "Solace - A Mexican Serenade" ( a rare tango from ragtime composer Scott Joplin ). Afterward, she has a chat with Kermit and tells him that he is the "Robert Redford of Frogs"....quite a compliment!
