This New York/New York anecdote comes from our Facebook friend, Henning Rübsam, the artistic Director/Choreographer of SENSEDANCE:
Back in NYC. Last night at the MET watching ABT …
“Are you in fashion?,” the old lady sitting next to me started the conversation.
“Always in fashion. But professionally I am a choreographer,” I answered.
“My nephew is one, – Billy Forsythe. He lived with us when he wanted to become a dancer and his father threw him out.”
“You did the dance world a great service. What do you do?”
“I ran a modeling agency. Ford Models.”
She and I simultaneously: “”I am/You are Eileen Ford.”"
