Around 1962 in Laredo, Texas, Eduardo Cansino, father of dancing movie star Rita Hayworth, arrived to live and teach in Laredo,  at the Galo Studio, where I also taught. He lived in Laredo around 3 years, in arrangements by Mrs. Genevieve Richter, a leading patron of the arts in Laredo. Previously, Mr. Cansino had his dance studio business in Hollywood.

First off, please place the name of Eduardo Cansino, Sr., in your computer search box.  When you find the Wikipedia write-up, go there for a concise look at his biography.  One of his three children was Margarita Cansino, who took the name Rita Hayworth, in her work as a dancing Hollywood  movie star.  The name Rita came from Margarita, and Hayworth was Rita’s mother’s maiden name.

By the way, my photo below was taken around that time, when I directed and produced the Feb. 22 Noche Mexicana show for the Laredo Lulacs, during the Washington Celebration in Laredo.
