Elaine Haling Lease Performances

We would like to receive additional photos, videos, stories and memories of Elaine Lease and her dance studios in St. Helens, Oregon.

You can also help us in accumulating a comprehensive collection by commenting in the blog on this page. What do you remember? Your costumes, the steps, music, dancing partners? Please share.

Let us know if you have any pictures or videos you would like to share. We would be happy to scan them and return the originals.

The videos below were provided by Tom Germer, the Japs Family, and Ron and Elaine Lease. If you recognize yourself or others in these clips, let us know so we can associate the name with the image. Include the time shown on the screen when the dancer appears in the clip, if possible.
