She was the daughter of a poor Russian family who escaped the horrors of communism by coming to America. Her new world desires conflicted with her old father's beliefs and the strains were devastating--both attempted suicide. But life prevailed and against all odds she was determined to follow her dream of becoming a classical ballet dancer.
At 16 she was offered a dancing job in Las Vegas. Can you imagine her shock when she learned that the job was not for ballet, but for bellydancing?! What would her father say? At first she rejected, and then reluctantly agreed. This job opened many doors which lead to a long career as a dancer, actress, and writer in the Hollywood world and included opportunities to work as a featured dancer on the original Star Trek and with Elvis Presley.
Tanya will be speaking at the Friday Lunch & Lecture about her experiences. She will also be available for book signings and signed photos.
