Lost and found

A few old photos I found:
This was a blank poster that Marilyn Bennet
created for us, back in the days of Xerox

Yasmela-Dere at Pt. Roberts
We sang this as we came on stage
and danced during the chorus breaks

Mustapha (Muzzy) on the davul
Cenguiz (Marty) on the conga
with Shayla off to the left

I am cleaning and sorting and scanning in old black and white negatives, color slides, old photos.  Here are a few from today.

our first pro shots

holding up the light fixture.

But wait...there's more

I just brought home a box of photos, posters and negatives from Marji/Aliah's husband's house. He passed away last year and still had a lot of Marj's things. Now it's up to me to sort and post. There are some wonderful photos I haven't seen and a nice stash of photos of Rossah, Marji's teacher and best friend, also Bou-Saada sister. As soon as I figure out the new scanner, I'll try to get them posted here.

Dancers we have known and loved

Time goes by and photos surface. I have a stack of negatives ready to be scanned. It occurs to me that several dancers performed with us for various amounts of time and I have forgotten to include them. If you read this, have a photo, and I have not mentioned you before, please get in touch, send me a copy of the photo, and I will post it.
Other dancers:
Cecelia Alvarez, artist and fabulous Cubana dancer
Farideh, Cathryn Balk
Rossah Bendhaman, aka Rossah Gulab
Lani Momeyer
I know there were more...
