|Leslie Streit commented on About the Harkness Ballet blog
Hello Harkness Dancers and Friends,
My name is Leslie Streit and I am a filmmaker in California. In 2010 I began a 3 part project with Maria Vegh under the auspices of ODC Theater in San Francisco. It is all about Maria and her memories of Harkness Ballet and that very exciting time in New York when all of you pioneers and experimenters changed the face of dance forever. The project included a website (http://www.anamericanballetstory.com), and a 2 hour instructional video of Maria’s work (How To Make A Ballet Dancer). After finishing another documentary I am ready to start the third part of my project – a documentary of Maria’s memories of Harkness and the NY dance scene in the 1960’s to ’70’s. Time is of the essence as memories are fading.
Thank you all for your contributions and I look forward to talking to you.
