Video: Local Dance History Interviews II






Here are a few more of the videos I shot for Michelle Ava at a meeting of her Dancing Forever group.

As I mentioned in prior posts, Michelle is working on establishing some type of local history archive. I haven’t spoken with her in a few months, so I’m not certain what work is being done to that end.

Below are videos of : Sue Green, Alvin Mayes (2), Barbara Drazin, and Michelle Ava (2.) It’s clear from watching the videos that all of the participants appreciated the opportunity to share some of their stories.

Sue Green:

Alvin Mayes:

Barbara Drazin:

Michelle Ava:

On Michelle’s behalf, thank you to Sue, Alvin, and Barbara for being a part of this documentation effort.

Bourgeon’s mission, through our online publication and community initiatives, is twofold: to increase participation in the arts and to improve access to the arts. Bourgeon is a project of the not-for-profit Day Eight.
