Rue’s first love (well, one of the first) was dance. It is perfect timing that as the Perry Mansfield School of Theatre and Dance prepares to celebrate their 100th anniversary, this certificate from one of their illustrious alumni is available. Rue never bragged about playing “Blanche” in “The Golden Girls,” but she proudly blew her horn about having attended Perry Mansfield. She loved her time there and the experience took her to a whole new level of professionalism. The certificate is 8.5″ x 11″ and it comes in a junky 9.5″ x 11.75″ frame (it is a junky frame!). It comes with a 8″ x 10″ print of Rue dancing at another famous dance program, Ted Shawn’s Jacob’s Pillow, and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
