Maria Tallchief


Recommended Posts

RIP Maria...who blazed a trail for many who have come since.  I never saw her dance live, but loved what I've seen on film, and also her interviews;  she always came across as a very nice, very intelligent woman.

Ernest Belcher (mentioned in the article) taught many who became dance legends.  My first teacher, Marguerite Ellicott was one of his students, too.  Southern California boasted a nest of terrific teachers and schools.

In the Dance Llinks today (Apr. 13) Bruce put in a link to several videos of Maria Tallchief dancing.  She is partnerned by several legendary male dancers - including a young Nureyev in the full flight of his youthful ballon.

 

I just spent a while enjoying these videos....the lovely arms, the lack of exageration, the musicality. 

 

You might want to give yourself a treat.
