Can you read this? No, neither could we! Fortunately, someone had donated a Russian dictionary, so Mary, a B2B volunteer, puzzled her way through the title, one letter at a time, to discover that this is a program from the Fourth International Ballet Competition held in Moscow, in 1981. What first caught our attention was the fact that this program was signed by 30 of the 33 judges, including Robert Joffrey. Further research revealed that American Amanda McKerrow, who danced with the American Ballet, in Washington, D.C., tied for first place. As it happens, American University in Washington, D.C., has a collection of ballet programs. Our program is now a part of that collection.
