Michel Panaieff, Victor Moreno, Vanya MishvekPanaieff's ballet school in Hollywood

Shortly afterwards I was invited by Alicia Alonso to join the Ballet Nacional de Cuba. After returning to the U.S. with my Cuban wife, Margarita de Saa, I returned to take classes at Panaieff's studio on S. La Brea Ave. I also resumed my contact with Victor (we had been roommates earlier). I am still in regular contact with him. He lives in Boulder Colorado. He is getting by, but unfortunately not doing so well. I can testify that he was a phenomenal dancer with a prodigeous technique. We spent many hours analyzing the ins and outs of ballet technique.
Anyone wishing to ask questions please do so. (firstname.lastname@example.org)

For curious readers, I think this might be the thread that you reference: http://ballettalk.in...p...c=23682&hl= . Thank you for the clarification and added info. Hearing from one of the people directly involved brings a greater sense of immediacy.
Your charming wife is mentioned in these posts: http://ballettalk.in...p...st&p=108246

I'm so happy to hear that Margarita's husband is here. About Magarita and Ramona I couldn't find that much info for my little threads on the Cuban ballerinas of the 60's. Maybe now i will have some light shred on the subject. I saw Mirror Dancing, and it really touched me deeply, as to the uncertainaty to when this trip to the homeland can become a reality for all of us. I'm sure that Margarita knows many things from the first years of the Cuban ballet that i always wonder and have no many people to ask about. Beautiful.
