interview with Joe Nash on 29 April 1995.
re: 1950s classes at Marion Cuyjet's
distinctive features of AADE

The interview followed Mr. Nash's lecture on Alvin Ailey
at Maine Center for the Arts as member of American Dance
Festival's Humanities Team on Tour [program of subsequent Ailey performance].

Joe Nash speaks (4/29/95) of the "bright-eyed" Philadelphia kids drinking up all he had
to offer, their locking the studio door behind him so classes always ran overtime -
Conversation with Arthur Hall (3/3/96) about great impression made by Joe Nash back in
the 50s, his beauty & strength, his background in gymnastics, his "New York
style," the awe he inspired. Arthur says they couldn't get enough of Nash's classes.
He remembers performing with Joe Nash in Leigh Parham's "Pictures at an Exhibition"
for the Cotillion Society of Philadelphia (also w/ John Jones,
Marion Cuyjet, Parham, others).
