“Frances and Henry Moquin have the ability to teach dancing pleasantly and thoroughly. They have had years of study with some of the country’s outstanding teachers. They were featured dancers in leading theaters, hotel, night clubs, musical comedies and movie shorts. They have been teaching in Holyoke for 5 years. Current material, acquired directly and privately from top New York choreographers enables them to offer fresh, new and unique routines. 343 High Street, Holyoke, Mass.”
