The archivist notes:
This is my grandmother Nina in December of 1936 when she took up dancing in the House of Artistic Upbringing of Children in Tiraspol, then the capital of Moldova. Things had just gotten better after the devastating hunger of 1932-1933 (she was hospitalized with typhus). Note the ‘valenki’ (seamless felt boots) under the costume of a young Caucasian rider. She makes a cute boy!
