pamaryc Posted January 29, 2013 Share Posted January 29, 2013 My name is Pam Carter and I am researching my family history. One of my relatives was a lady known as Joan Davis. She was a choreographer who worked in London during the 1930s and 1940s. She choreographed several theatrical shows with Cleo Nordi. Now as a child I remember being told that Aunty Joan Davis was a famous dancer who had met Pavlova...there were even autographed photographs to prove it though sadly I do not know where they are now. To be honest I thought it was a load of bunkum until I started this research and found her company: Joan Davis Dance Producer 10, Great Newport St. London WC2 Joan's real name was Violet Davis but she hated that name with a passion and insisted on being called Joan! I see that several members of this site have had lessons and conversations with Cleo Nordi. I wonder if anyone heard of my great Aunt Joan. I would so much appreciate hearing from anyone who might have even the slightest tit-bit of information. Thank you all so much Quote Link to comment
