There was a bunch of reminiscing at this party! It was a lots of fun. The dancers were so happy to see each other and to catch up on news about everyone.

Here are my rough notes identifying everyone.
Top Row Left to Right: Jerilyn Doucette Dana, Warren Lynch, Bob Steele,

Seated on a staircase step, just below Jerilyn, is Jeanne Churchill, head of the Dance Dept at Bard College, next to her to the right is Geraldine Gagnon with necklace, Stephanie Marini King, David Browne, General Manager of Boston Ballet (at the time, now at Pacific Northwest Ballet??)

Below David is his wife, Elaine Bauer, Then, to her right is Anthony Williams.

Alphy (Alphonse Poulin) is behind Cecily.

Right from Alphy is Linda DiBona, Leslie Woodies, Susan Magno (in Scottsdale Arizona?), Above her is Clyde Nantais.

To the right of Susan M is Sue Ring. Her husband is to the left of Cecily. They are technical. He was perhaps a stage manager. He ran the tours. She was lighting? They came after I left.

Then Cecily, The Lion, Virginia Zango, School on the Cape. Carolyn LaFleur, James Reardon. Leaning over is Robin (Dolly) Adair, whose studio is in Manchester Mass.

Front row... Sidney Leonard, Laura Young who teaches and runs the program at the Boston Ballet School, and my dear friend from Magnolia, Reva Willdorf.

More on everyone will be added as I gather the info together.

(I am thinking about a method for labeling the dancers. If you have a suggestion, please let us know.)
