Nel Roos (1914-1970)
"Dutch artists have performed or taught at the Pillow [Jacob's Pillow] since the early 1940s,
including Lucas Hoving, Nel Roos, and Pauline de Groot."
I recently read The Dance of Love by Margaret Craske (1893-1991).
The ballet technique, of which she spoke, lives on through these pages.
Her loving pupil, Susan Helene
