Mona in Measured Meter

Nanette Weiss

There once was a lady named Mona.
(She lived not too far from Verona.)
Da Vinci said "smile,"
And it took her awhile....
She became quite a famous persona.

Nanette Weiss graduated from New York's Hunter College in 1978. During her career as a professional dancer and choreographer, she appeared in venues as varied as La Mama and Lincoln Center. She is the director of her own Brooklyn-based arts and music center, ArtsCetera, and is currently at work on a book about New York City's post-modern dance scene in the 1980's.
