This chapter begins with La Meri and Carreras settling into New York City, and the continuation of their professional work. It then focuses on La Meri’s schools and teaching—particularly her Ethnologic Dance Center, which existed from 1942 to 1956. The last section covers her relationships with the three important men in her life: Carreras, who left her in 1944; Charles James Miller, a student and then member of her company; and Peter di Falco, who also began as a student and member of her company. The personal relationship between La Meri and di Falco ran from 1946 to the late 1950s, and they taught, performed, and toured together.

Keywords:   New York City, Ethnologic Dance Center, Carreras, Charles James Miller, Peter di Falco
