9 June 2011 (-1 in time zone):

This person seems to be someone important - perhaps someone involved with the hotel, or it may even be a relative or descendant of Aggie Grey or Aggie Grey herself? I think that may actually be Aggie Grey! She was important enough to have the main dancer lie down in front of her to have her step on - apparently a pretty common move for important women in dances here. Note the epic cartoonish yell at the beginning of the video.

Here's an interesting article on the hotel and Aggie by the New York Times:
