Before Goldie Hawn was an A-list movie star, she was a professional ballet dancer and these throwback photos of her teaching will blow you away. 

The Christmas Chronicles actress, 75, once had her heart set on a career in dance and she even ran and instructed a ballet school.

Goldie was 19 years old in the black-and-white snapshots but it was clear she already possessed star quality. 

The photos were taken in 1964 in Arlington, Virginia. Just four years later Goldie made her feature film debut in The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band. 

From there on in she landed movie role after movie role and an Oscar too!

Goldie was passionate about ballet 

Goldie and Kurt recently opened up about their decision not to get married in an interview with People magazine. 

The actor explained: "For people like us, the marriage certificate wasn't going to create anything that otherwise we wouldn’t have. I don’t know. 40 years isn’t enough to finally say, 'Well I guess...'"

Goldie added: "It's about the people and the relationship, and the will to stay together.

"And that’s a big one because if you want it, you can have it. You've got to give things up, but the joy and the excitement of being together and touching the toes of somebody at night is really a nice feeling."
