Aileen Passloff, RIP

Recommended Posts

She died in 2020. Missed these  obits at the time.



Raised in Queens and trained as a young girl in classical ballet by a Russian dancer, Passloff began attending Manhattan’s School of American Ballet when she was thirteen years old. It was there that she met artist and choreographer James Waring, who would remain a lifelong friend and collaborator. In 1948, she entered Bennington College and was thrust into the unfamiliar world of modern dance. Being there, she later recalled for Dance magazine, “rocked every thought I ever had.” Upon graduation, she joined David Vaughan and Waring’s cooperative, mixed-discipline company Dance Associates, where she danced alongside Paul Taylor, Tanaquil Le Clercq, Edward Denby, and many others.
