1970 Press Photo Marjorie Mussman, The First Chamber Dance Company of New York


Marjorie Mussman, the First Chamber Dance Company of New York. "A member of the Joffrey Ballet from 1965 to 1969, Mussman drew critical praise for her portrayals of the Old Mother in Jooss' The Green Table, the Suicide role in Sokolow's Rooms, and the pianist in Flemming Flindt's The Lesson. After dancing with the First Chamber Dance Quartet (now First Chamber Dance Company), she began teaching ballet classes at the Morelli Studio in NYC. Mussman served as an associate director of the Milwaukee Ballet and as director of New Jersey's American Repertory Ballet. She choreographed more than 35 ballets for the Joffrey Ballet, Pacific Northwest Ballet, and Kansas City Ballet, among others. In 2001, she joined the faculty of Mark Morris Dance Group to teach professional/advanced ballet (see "Teacher's Wisdom," Jan. 2005)." (http://www.dancemagazine.com/issues/January-2010/Transitions)
