Important Women in Ballet
Posted 15 May 2001 - 08:32 PM
Starting with directors, my contributions are Dame Ninette De Valois of the Royal Ballet, Lucia Chase of American Ballet Theater, Barbara Weisberger of Pennsylvania Ballet, Katherine Littlefield of Littlefield Ballet, Patricia Wilde of Pittsburgh Ballet Theater, Mary Day of Washington Ballet, Francia Russel (who co-directs with her husband Kent Stowell ) of Pacific Northwest, Anna Pavlova, who toured the US and Europe extensively after the Ballets Russes, Marie Rambert, there must be more.
Some choreographers that come to mind are Bronislava Nijinska, Agnes De Mille, and Twyla Tharp.
Barbara Crocket and Lila Zali and the others who founded the RDA movement come to mind as well.
Please offer your contributions and let's see how many women are impacting our art form today.

I'd also have to add Mary Day, who was also a major influence.
