Pictured here in a small segment of Ruth Page's ballet "Camille" (aka La Traviata), filmed in 1965 for television. I am not sure who the girl is, thought it could be Jeanne Armin but would have to ask.

Whoever the woman was, she barely needed a preparation for anything!

No kidding -- there was a little bit of everything in that!

I'm pretty sure this is the only appearance these characters make in the ballet, sort of as "happy peasant entertainment" for the Camille/Marguerite/Armand characters that you see briefly at the end applauding them.

I asked someone who danced with Jeanne... She said it "certainly looked like Jeanne" but that Jeanne joined ABT in the summer of '65, in which case the filming would have needed to be done earlier...

[I didn't confirm the rumor about the turning facility which I had heard from a different source.]

Interestingly, the sidebar in youtube is full of hurricane videos. I would like to attribute that to the turns, but I assume there was a hurricane Camille in '65? [yes, but in 69]

Actually Amy, that fits; the slate at the beginning of the complete film says it was taped March 25, 1965, so I guess it is her!

Super! It is always fascinating to see a teacher as they were in their dancing days!
