BIO:
I live in Brookline, Mass. Graduated from Northeastern University. Have been a widow for over 20 years. Have 3 children - Chuck 32, Sean 30 and Kim 28 years old. And a very hyper yellow lab, Chloe. I work in insurance - far from my P.A. drama major! I've lost touch years ago with my class of '62 classmates and often wonder where they are - especially Marcy Rosenblum.

BIO:
Bel Kaufman 1911-2014]
Do see "My Lunch With Belochka, " a small "homage" to our dearest youngest 102 year old teacher and friend, Bel Kaufman, who shined on me and on us all. http://www.persimmontree.org/v2/summer-2013/my-lunch-with-belochka/

Born in NYC, traveled the world. Graduated from PA, attended Northwestern and New York Universities, quit for a role in her first Off Broadway play; trained with Lee Strasberg, performed in world premieres of Harold Pinter, David Hare, worked in companies of Lincoln Center & Joseph Papp's Public Theatre, toured as Ophelia, nominated for a tv Emmy award, for a country western drama in which she had her head in an oven, but was saved by a neighbor who prayed for her.

MARGO BERDESHEVSKY often lives in Paris. Her newest poetry collection is "Between Soul and Stone," (Sheep Meadow Press/ 2011.) "But a Passage in Wilderness" was also published by Sheep Meadow Press in 2007. Her book of short stories, "Beautiful Soon Enough," was illustrated with her own photo-montages and it received Fiction Collective Two’s American Book Review/Ronald Sukenick/ Innovative Fiction Award (Published by University of Alabama Press.) Other honors include the Robert H. Winner Award from the Poetry Society of America, 8 Pushcart Prize nominations, 2 Pushcart "special mention" citations, the Chelsea Poetry Award, the Academy of American Poet's Poem-for-a-day. Her works have also appeared in literary journals in the USA and Europe.

Her Tsunami Notebook of documentary photographs and poems was made following a journey to Sumatra in Spring 2005, to work in a survivors' clinic in Aceh. Her multi-genre novel, "Vagrant" is next at the gate. Born in New York City, she can often be found reading from her books in Paris, London, and New York.

"There is in Margo Berdeshevsky’s work a rare persistence of the lyric voice, used with a sense of ecstasy & grief almost religious in its evocations. Absolutely modern & fearlessly romantic by turns, the poems circle the rich & threatened corners of the living planet & travel further into places marked by mythic & oneiric time. With the publication of But a Passage in Wilderness, Berdeshevsky emerges, fully empowered, as the maker of a new poetry that pushes voice & image toward creation of a world “barbaric, vast and wild” that Diderot once saw as marker of what all poetry must be." (JEROME ROTHENBERG)

All those years as an actress -- I finally needed my own words, not just an improvisation.


With much care to you each, for your own dreams and projects in the making... Margo

BIO:
I worked as a jazz/pop singer for 10 years including worldwide for the USO, stopped to raise my son, Michael Noeth, who, as a member of the US Navy became a well-known master artist for them. He was killed on 9/11. During his life and the time I stopped singing, I became a systems application designer. Since 9/11, I have been semi-retired. I work part time and do gigs on and off. I am also considering remarriage for the first time in over 30 years. I guess one door closes and another opens.

I will miss appearing at the SPAA show this year. I have appeared at several in the past, but this year you didn't notify me in time for that to be possible.

BIO:
Daniel Lewis, internationally-recognized dancer, teacher, choreographer and author, joined New World School of the Arts (NWSA) in Miami, Florida, in 1987, as founding Dean of Dance. Here, drawing from nearly three decades of experience in the field, Mr. Lewis created the dance division's eight-year professional program.

In addition to developing and managing NWSA's dance program, Mr. Lewis has heightened modern dance awareness in South Florida through Miami Dance Futures, a company he formed in 1988. Miami Dance Futures produced the highly successful Miami Balanchine Conference, the Dance History Scholars' Conference, the National High School Dance Festival and the Modern Dance Sampler. Miami Dance Futures also produces local dance companies, including Houlihan and Dancers and Rosita Segovia's Ballet Español.

Mr. Lewis is perhaps most widely known for his association with the work of Jose Limón. From 1962-74, he danced with the José Limón Dance Company, originating roles in A Choreographic Offering, Legend, Psalm, The Winged, Comedy and The Unsung. In 1975, Mr. Lewis completed the choreography of The Waldstein Sonata, an unfinished work begun by Limón just before his death.

In 1972 following the death of José Limón Mr. Lewis served as the Limón company's acting artistic director and in 1984 became founding director of the Limón Institute. Mr. Lewis's book, The Illustrated Dance Technique of José Limón (Harper & Row Publishers, 1984), has been translated in German, Spanish and Japanese. A second addition was released by Princeton University Press in August of 1999 BARNES AND NOBLE. In addition the Technique Video or DVD, is available from VIDEO D. He had two papers published, in Medical Problems of Performing Artists, in 1998 "Health Care for Dance Students at a Performing Arts Academy" and "Dancing with a Prosthesis". He was Issue Editor for Dance in Hispanic Cultures, Harwood Academic Publishers.

As a choreographer, Mr. Lewis has been commissioned to create works by the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts, Dallas Civic Opera, American Opera Center at Lincoln Center, Amherst College, the University of California at Los Angeles, The Juilliard School, as well as companies in South America and England. His repertory company, Daniel Lewis Dance, has performed and taught extensively throughout the United States, Europe and Scandinavia.

From 1984-87, Mr. Lewis was Assistant to Martha Hill, the Director of the Dance Division, at The Juilliard School, where he had been a member of the dance faculty since 1967. Mr. Lewis was also an adjunct professor at New York University and a professor at Amherst College for six years while his company was in residence there.

Mr. Lewis has served on the Fulbright Screening Committee and as a dance panelist for the National Endowment for the Arts. He now serves as a dance panelist and advisor to the Canada Council, a dance panelist for the Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, and a community grants panelist for the Metro-Dade Cultural Affairs Council. He is currently on the boards of, NASD, FDA and CAAA.

A productive writer, Mr. Lewis's articles on dance education have been published nationally and abroad. In 1992 he was guest editor of Choreography and Dance.

Mr. Lewis graduated from New York's High School of Performing Arts in 1962 and The Juilliard School in 1967. In 1990, the National Society of Arts and Letters awarded Mr. Lewis the gold medal for Lifelong Achievement in Dance. In 2001 he received The Florida Arts Recognition Award recognizing his outstanding initiatives, leadership and excellence in supporting the arts in Florida. In 2002 he received two awards, he was Honorary Chairman for "dance4life", and received a Life time achievement award and was presented with the Nancy Smith Award, for consistently demonstrating outstanding leadership and excellence in dance in Florida at the Florida Dance Festival.
