DAWN danced on approximately the first six episodes of HULLABALOO under famed choreographer David Winters. Later that year (1965) she was a dancer on the Beatles American summer tour as part of an act called the The Discoteque Dancers. The choreographer was Hal Loman and they backed various artists such as Marvin Gaye and Tony Martin. Then in October of 1965 she joined the GAZZARRI DANCERS on HOLLYWOOD A GO-GO and stayed until the final episode. NShe continued to dance professionally into the early 1970s. She later went on to become a Branaff Airlines flight attendant. Today she lives in southern California.
DAWN was a member of the dance troupe that was part of the legendary August 15, 1965 Shea Stadium concert. They were one of the opening acts prior to the Beatles taking the stage. Below is a photo of the dancers with DAWN third from the right.
DAWN was the solo go-go dancer featured during The Doors "Light My Fire" performance on the December 27, 1967 Jonathan Winters Show. The best look we get of her is behind Ray Manzarek during the guitar solo. Here is the link to that video:
