Other choreographers were Randy Duncan, Frank Chaves, Sherry Zunker. Sean Curran and Harrison McEldowney who choreographed a special tribute to Ann Barzel.
Ann Barzel is famous for sneaking her moving picture camera in to many of the greatest performances given in Chicago and other parts of the world for many years, before dance was being filmed.

Thanks Glebb, for posting the news, and for going into detail, so we could get a sense of hte event.... Violette Verdy came, it must have been a wonderful evening...
Somewhere I've seen a video of Gaites Parisiennes, with Danilova and Frankin, that was pieced together from footage shot by Ms Barzel with her "concealed' camera -- most of the dancers look like Looney TUne figures, especially their shoes -- (which maybe means that Looney-Tune cartoonists were close observers of the artists they burlesqued). I would never have guessed what the qualiuty of hte phrasing was in real Massine dancing if I hadn't seen that video....
