Hi, This is a message I have been intending to send for quite qa while but got hung up in the press of other distractions. A long time ago Helen used to dance and teach in London and is southerly environs. In those days of 'Steam' computers and punch-cards Helen instigated the indexing of dances on these cards by type, book reference, deviser, and content and which she originally used to carry round in a small suitcase. I understand that Keith Napier used some of her initial data to kick-start his index which has led onward and upward!. (Do I have that right, Keith?) The point of all this rambling is that I mentioned her name to a certain editor I wot of and he asked if there was any news of her? I believe she was dancing in the Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire area some years ago. Is there anyone who can give better history/news of her?
