    My mother (Betty Scorer, later Frank, but calling herself Elizaveta Souvorova at the time). She is one of the nursemaids.

      Every time I put up a ballet post I come across people who know at least one of the dancers. I love that. 🙂

      I usually know someone in these old pictures, as I grew up in the ballet world and used to work in various capacities for a few different companies.
