Clem Zeleski passed away Tuesday, November 27, 2007


This link is to youtube performance

 of Clem as Fred Astaire:

The opening words to Clem's video read:

When I get to Heaven,

and I'm settled there,

may I dine with Mr. Disney....

and dance with Fred Astaire?




What a terrible loss ......

I hope Clem is dining with Disney and dancing with Fred




    Elise Vallee passed away Saturday December 1, 2007

   Elise was the manager and ballet  teacher at Backstage Dance Studio for over 20 years.

    "She taught with compassion, love and wanted everyone to succeed."

      said Kenny Maslow  "She was the driving force behind Clem Zeleski."

    "Darling look at the sun, life is wonderful !" she would say, and " Pull up darling, pull up!"


   "A loving and heart felt person for everyone she came in contact with." said Jan Drake 

   "It won't be the same next time I go to Backstage."


  "We, of the dance world, know how beautiful a woman she was...and wish her  peace...."





 Liz Hayden died March 7, 2007

 She was my sister, and I will always remember her as a bright and beautiful star -- a dancer, singer, and actress, who brought joy to many people's lives. She danced with “Disney on Parade”, the “La Scala Revue” in Bracelona with Miss Bluebell, “Lido De Paris” at the Stardust, and the MGM’s “Hallelujah Hollywood” and “Jubilee”

 Liz suffered a very serious aneurysm twenty years ago and lived with our mother for fifteen years,  making a remarkable recovery, but losing the use of her left side and short term memory. She fought bravely for those many years, but had a massive stroke on January 16, 2007, from which she never recovered. I remember well the family of dancers in Las Vegas -- how supportive they were after her aneurysm, and the strong sense of caring they shared with one another.

Glenn Nash passed away Tuesday March 20th, 2007.

 Glenn was my best friend and a fabulous male dancer. He also graced the stage w/ the one & only Ann Margaret when she was Headlining at Caesar’s Palace in the early 80's to middle 90's. He was a Chippendale DANCER in Los Angeles in 1986 & 87.

 Glenn worked with the talented Lisa Clarson in Fredrick Apcar's "Bedazzled" in Lake Tahoe, and danced at the “Lido De Paris” at the Stardust Hotel.  Unfortunately he was not able to attend the Cast and Crew Reunion, due to his sickness. But, he was there in spirit & wished us ALL to have a GREAT time.
