    I am searching for a very dear friend who danced with Joffrey Ballet in the early 1970s. Donna Cowen is originally from Birmingham, Alabama, and joined Joffrey through the Jr. Miss Alabama contest. Would you have any means of helping me locate her? I believe she married and moved to Florida, but am not sure if this information is correct. We lost contact many years ago and it would be so special to find her. Thank you for any assistance you may have in locating her.

      Hi Jan- We will pass your request on to an administrator at the school and see what we can do. We do still have faculty at the school that were around in the 1970s, so maybe one of them will know your friend. We’ll email you back with the information we find! Have a wonderful day!

          I, too, would like to say hello to Donna Cowan. She was a friend at Homewood Jr High, as well.
          She encouraged me to try out to be an apprentice at the Birmingham Civic Ballet under Gage Bush England.

          Ballet was my foundation for a long career in dance & fitness.
          My name was Diane Brown.

          Donna, do you remember me?

      Jan,

      If you find her let me know please. We were in the band together at Homewood Jr High.. She was my first girlfriend. The information I have is the same as yours.

      Thanks
