Born Mary Jane West in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn, she always considered herself half Jewish. Her mother, Matilda Decker Doelger, an immigrant from Munich, was Jewish. Her father, Jack West, a featherweight prizefighter called "Battling Jack" West and later a stable master, was Anglo-Irish.

 

Playing opposite Ed Wynn in Arthur Hammerstein's "Sometime," with music by Rudolf Friml, Ms. West introduced the shimmy to the Broadway stage in 1918. In the shimmy, there was hardly any movement of the feet, but continuous movement of the shoulders, torso and pelvis. She had seen the dance at black cafés in Chicago.
