It is nostalgic to see Andrea Duda's name. The last time I saw Andrea I had driven her to New York City where she was going to pursue dance and study at the Academy of Performing Arts. I understand she went on to dance with June Taylor. It is good to be reminded of good people.

Andrea and I were roommates in New York City in 1964. We lived in a little L-shaped studio apartment (!) around East 23rd St. We were both attending the American Academy of Dramatic Arts together. When I went to Miami in 1966, I stopped off to see Andrea and stayed overnight with her. We basically sat up all night talking. She was dancing with the June Taylor Dancers, which I thought was totally exciting. Then I went off to spend a week with my grandmother. Andrea gave me and my grandmother a pass so we could sit in with the studio audience for the Jackie Gleason Show and I saw her dance professionally. Then we all went out to dinner afterwards. It was a lot of fun.
I didn't know much about keeping in touch with people back then. I don't know what I was thinking of, because I don't think of myself as thoughtless but as I search the internet for people I used to know and were fond of, I am finding I waited too long in some cases. She was a lovely person.Is Andrea still alive?
