From: Karen Davis <email@example.com>
Mme. Penny Godboldo
Chair, Dance Department, Marygrove College
Director, Pemajju School of Dance, Detroit.
She studied with Dunham, keeps very close ties with her, & has studied in
Haiti herself, is a strong dancer & teacher, has also studied in Benin &
other W. Africa (as well as Trinidad, Japan, etc.)
I sent her your email but she may not get it since it is July.
Home telephone: 313-867-7707, at her office here: 313-927-1304
At Pemajju: 313-396-5666.
If she cannot do this, she knows all the other original Dunham-trained
dancers & others in US, Haiti, etc.
Don't forget--if you need a Detroit connection--my husband is a master
