Her second presentation is a gypsy
dance to a selection of gypsy tunes
which make up “Troika Bells.” It
is a temperamental character

Unrestricted girl of the plains who
longs for her absent sweetheart
and in imagination is reunited with
The third dance is “Daughter of
the Caucasian Chief,” a stylized
number in which Maya uses cym
bals and depicts a fanatic follow

years ago in the production of the
Miami Little Theatre’s version
of “Midsummer Night’s Dream.”
The production centered on a well
trained corps de ballet which was
the talk of Miami. It .brought Ma
ya to the attention of the public
and spurred her on to advance
study of the dance. At that time,
Jack Monts, now a solo dancer in
the Metropolitan Opera Company's
ballet, appeared with Maya. He is
also a former student of Princess
