    The fine photo of Mr. Pourfarrokh with two women is from A. Ailey’s “Feast of Ashes” circa 1965. The two women are June Wilson as a daughter and Suzanne Hammons as the mother in “Feast”.

    Delighted to see that Mr. Pourfarrokh is still active. He was a wonderful dancer and partner.

    Kathleen Bannon (Harkness Ballet 1964-67)
