HI... help please. A long time ago I saw a short film about the School of the American Ballet from the late 60s or early 70s. It was in black and white and featured a great variation by a very young Bujones (probably in Stanley Williams' class). Does anyone know the title of this film? Any ideas?

Bujones is recorded in the film by Virginia Brooks listed below, tho' i can't say he dances a variation; it was telecast around this time and there are off-the-air videos in various collections. needless to remark, the NYPL for the Perf. Arts at Lincoln Center has a copy.

it's all i can think of with regard to your question, however.
