Heather's Oral History at the New York Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center, Jerome Robbins Dance Division is live!
In 2018 Heather was honored to record her oral history for the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center. The wonderful tap dancer, producer and director, Anthony Morigerato was her interviewer. After 30 hours of pre-interview, they recorded for 8 hours in the Lincoln Center Library recording studio. Heather returned a year later to record an hour interview with Cassie Mey, dance oral history archivist and curator of the series, about her co-artistic director of Manhattan Tap, Tony Scopino. All the interviews are now live and available in their digital library.
