This was prepared for a celebration by Dancers Over 40 in New York City honoring Luigi
(Eugene Louis Faciutto), one of jazz dance's pioneers. Billie was unable to attend in person
this time (we had gone to DO40 events before) so we prepared this video dedication.
Billie Mahoney was one of his first assistants and is a dance notator (Labanotation).
She notated many of Luigi's exercise routines in the late 1950's and into the 1960's.
This video combines archive video from the early 1980s with Billie interviewing Luigi.
Billie met Luigi in 1957.
