Luigi

My dance teacher in NYC when I was twelve years old and to this day I take his class.

Luigi

Some of Luigi's students are Liza, Donna McKechnie, Ben Vereen (still takes class), John Travolta, Barbra Streisand, Twyla Tharp... well there isn't enough room on these pages to list them all!


Always loved to dance

I always loved to dance.

South Pacific

Richard Rodgers sent me to dance class and for diction lessons.


South Pacific

When I was Ezio Pinza's daughter Ngana in "South Pacific", one of my biggest dreams was to grow up to play Liat. Finally it came to be in a company again with Mary Martin and Georgio Tozzi. That's Virginia Lee in the role of Ngana.

The Teahouse of the August Moon

When "The King and I" was closing, I didn't want to go on the road. Graduating seemed a better idea. I auditioned for "The Teahouse of the August Moon" and was given the understudy role of Lotus Blossom despite the fact the role was spoken in Japanese. Seven months later I starred in the first national co. at age15.


A Chorus Line

This dance photo was used in an article in the LA Times. After a grueling audition for "A Chorus Line", only two of us from Los Angeles were chosen for the new NY Company. What an honor!

Luigi's class

While I was on "One Life to Live", I would take Luigi's class after work, (1985-1987).
