(ENTERTAINMENT--DANCE.) Group of photographs of the short-lived but influential New York Negro Ballet Company. 38 photographs, various sizes up to 8 3/4 x 6 inches, 2 signed in negative by photographer "Bruno of Hollywood" [Bruno Bernard]; most blank on verso, 2 with inked stamps of New York photographer Martin Dall, 3 with short pencil captions, and one with inked stamp of a British newspaper and an inscription by star dancer Delores Browne. Np, circa 1957
The New York Negro Ballet Company was founded late in 1956. In August 1957, they embarked on a tour of Great Britain, but their top financial backer passed away before they could continue to continental Europe; they continued to perform stateside through 1959 as Ballet Americana. Most of these photographs are professional shots of the dancers on stage; two show them posed on a steamship en route to Europe.
