For more than 25 years, Stanley Holden's ballet school in the Rancho Park area served the local dance community and also attracted many great stars who lived here or passed through town. Such dancers as Juliet Prowse (Holden's first celebrity), Mikhail Baryshnikov and Natalia Makarova took classes at the Holden Dance Center, as did Ron Reagan, the president's son, who met his future wife on the premises.

The Joffrey Ballet introduced a quartet of new principals in the Saturday matinee performance of "La Fille mal Gardee" at the Performing Arts Center in Costa Mesa. Two more new principals appeared in the Saturday evening performance. At the matinee, the doe-eyed Dawn Caccamo offered a demure and refined interpretation of Lise, little stressing the impulsive, mischievous side of the character. But she danced with impeccable technique and phrasing.

The paparazzi lined up outside along the Chasen's canopy while the Garden Room inside was mobbed with the famous faces that make those bulbs go off. "On Your Toes" stars Dina Merrill and Natalia Makarova were hosting a party for their in-town friends. But as far as the glitzy life of a celeb, Makarova said the party was a singular break in her two-month stay here, since she spends the day basically "to prepare for the play."

Cynthia Gregory looked thoughtfully at a steaming plate of bacon and eggs just set before her and stubbed out a cigarette in an ashtray. The arrival of food interrupted her flow of talk after a recent late morning class at Stanley Holden's dance studio in West Los Angeles. With unflappable grace, the former Angelena resumed her discourse on life as a big-time ballerina.

I just attended the performances of "Swan Lake and "Romeo and Juliet" by the Moscow State Classical Ballet. What struck me was that a city like Moscow in a country like Russia has not one but two ballet companies. Do we have a single local company here that could put on a full-length ballet performance? Shouldn't we have our own locally based ballet, not only imported ones? My suggestion is that Cynthia Gregory, Fernando Bujones and Stanley Holden might form such a company.
