Remembering Marnee Morris

Here's the Dance Magazine obituary, http://dancemagazine...Morris-19462011

That's a very lovely tribute. Thank you.

Somebody earlier in this thread mentioned that she was in a video of Rubies in the tall girl part. It was on a Villella documentary but not Man Who Dances. This had more dancing clips. Patricia McBride performances in Rubies and Tchaikovsky Pas de Deux and Villella does the solo from Apollo. I saw it at the Performing Arts Library at Lincoln Center.

the NYPL cat. listing fails to name Morris but this I think this is the film you mean, Dale.

Ballet with Edward Villella 1970.27 min. Notes : (Introduction to the performing arts).

: Written and narrated by Edward Villella. Choreography: George Balanchine.

: Summary: An introduction to ballet, demonstrated by Edward Villella, Patricia McBride and other artists of the New York City Ballet.

: PARTIAL CONTENTS.--Tchaikovsky pas de deux excerpt, Villella and McBride.--Pantomimic scene from Act II of Giselle, Villella as Albrecht; music by Adolphe Adam.--Solo from Apollo, Villella; music by Igor Stravinsky.--Excerpt from the Rubies section of Jewels, McBride, Villella, and artists of the New York City Ballet; music by Igor Stravinsky

also as noted on the 'ballet history and music' forum, in the recently posted scan of a photo of Balanchine's SWAN LAKE - under 'undated NYCB performance photo' - Morris can be seen in ensemble of swan maidens behind Kent's Odette to the right of the dark haired dancer (Teena McConnell)
