These notes indicate Nancy's desire for perfection and constant improvement to every aspect of a production.

Excerpt 1:
Sept - 1947 - "Open House" - 2 Nites - Gym
"Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child"
- Shirley Fields - Sylvia Lerman - Gussie Feldman - N. Lima - Well Received

Not bad for a beginning. Should have presented a lighter number with it or a more easily understood one. Rather too abstract for audience.

Excerpt 2:
Dec 24/47 "Xmas Party" - 585 Bathurst
"Chee Lai" - Solo - N. Lima
Excellent - well-liked by audience

Knew room would be small so made dance fit 4' x 6' space. Later enlarged for stage-use.
