Do Persians count :) Royal Danish Ballet ballerina Linda Hindberg's mother was Persian (her term). Hindberg is on tape in the RDB's "Napoli."

In any case, if anyone does know of any further biographical information of the dances listed in this thread, could add to the list, or could point to recordings of their dancing, I'd appreciate it. I believe Hussein is the Lilac Fairy on the Durante RB Sleeping Beauty recording, but I'll have to double check.

Ami, Benazir Hussein eventually took her married name - Surtees - and googling her under that name produces an interview with a little more about her. (Her brother was the England cricket captain for several years and is much better known here than she is!)
