Will you just look at these heart-melting ballerinas?

Lost Newcastle member, Kate Douchkov, shared this image and we think some of these little people may include Marie Anthes, Jennifer Arthur, Kathy Downe or Lyn Fairweather.

Can you identify any of them?

This photo was taken in 1968 at the Tessa Maunder School of Ballet concert at Newcastle’s Civic Theatre in 1968.

Tessa Maunder OAM was a legendary classical dance teacher in Newcastle and her students included Marilyn Jones OBE who studied with Tessa as a little girl.

Let us know if you recognise one of these tiny ballerinas or would like to share stories or photos of Tessa who passed away in 2022.
