This 1990 home movie captures daughter Jennifer Munoz’s trip to Russia, where she and other dancers from Orange and Port Neches performed. The Lorna Badon and June Badon dance schools sent 42 girls on the trip, becoming the first Texas dancers to perform in Russia. Following visits to Moscow and Minsk, the dancers travel to Saint Petersburg (then known as Leningrad). The troupe tours the city in between recitals, including a stop at the Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral.
