Famous Classical Dancer to have Morning Auditions

"The appearance of the famous classical dancer Gertrude Hoffman and her American ballet at Keith's this
week will probably have a stimulating effect on the B.F. Keith dancing class of this day. There are now
250 pupils in the local organization who are rehearsing daily under the direction of Mrs. F.P. Milla.
Miss Hoffman will give morning audition in the theatre for the class.
