1960's At Hedgerow Theater, I studied acting with Jasper Deeter, co-founder with Eugene O'Neill of The Provincetown Players. I was a member of his master class and the youngest member of the Hedgerow Theater Company, acting in classical repertory for four years. I also studied classical ballet at Trianon School of Ballet, Philadelphia.
1950's I studied classical ballet and appeared in school theatricals, usually as the Virgin Mary at Christmas but also as Our Lady of Guadeloupe, Our Lady of Fatima, Our Lady of Lourdes and of course Our Lady of Czestochowa. (It was a Polish school!).
