Here he sits astride a tractor, part of his job helping in the development of new crops and grasses at the experimental farm - Former Amsterdam housewife, Maria van Witsen, never imagined that enough children would be interested in learning ballet dancing for her to start a school in the small town of Biloela, Central Queensland, Australia. Maria 30, and her husband Walter 31, a former tea-planter in Indonesia and later a bank clerk in Amsterdam, migrated to Australia in 1959 with their children Roy now 8 and Patty 4 - Walter works at the Governmental experimental farm at Biloela and plans to start his own classes in Swedish gymnastics in his spare time.
