Mary Anthony: Artistic Director and Choreographer
Miss Anthony began her career with a dance scholarship with Hanya Holm in the early 1940's, eventually joining the Holm Company, concertizing with Joseph Gifford, and appearing in Broadway shows. Her staging of the London production of Touch and Go, in which she danced one of the lead roles, resulted in a long association as a choreographer for Italian musical theatre. Miss Anthony is recognized as one of the leaders of the modern dance movement, as a dancer, a choreographer, and as an exceptional teacher. The Mary Anthony Dance Theatre began life in 1956 and has a repertory that includes works by Anna Sokolow, Lester Horton, Charles Weidman, Ross Parkes, Daniel Malony, and Bertam Ross. An international choreographer, Miss Anthony's works have been added to the repertories of the Pennsylvania Ballet, the Bat-Dor Company of Israel, the Dublin City Ballet, and the National Institute for the Arts of Taiwan. Miss Anthony continues to teach at her studio and at the Herbert Berghof Studio for Actors.
Since its opening forty years ago, the studio has provided an outstanding learning environment, designed by Ms. Anthony to awaken and foster the individual creative gifts of her students. Her method of training builds dancers as creative theater artists and performers with the ultimate goal being mastery of both the inner and outer instrument.  Ms. Anthony teaches daily technique classes in fundamental through advanced levels, private lessons, holds repertory classes and rehearsals for a May through November New York season.
The Mary Anthony Dance Theatre Foundation runs the Mary Anthony Dance Theatre and the Mary Anthony Dance Studio.
While on tour in London with a production of Touch and go, in which she had the lead, she was invited to work in Italy, to teach, perform and choreograph for their musical theater.
Following the premiere of Ms. Anthony's signature work Threnody - for which Benjamin Britten gave special permission to use his SimfoniaLouis Horst wrote, "Here is the most beautiful and complete dance composition this observer has seenЦ this is something approaching perfection."  As Walter Terry saw it, "Her dance springs from the pulse of the heart and courses outward into the drama of life (N.Y. Tribune).  Jennifer Dunning (N.Y. Times) has described Ms. Anthony's Songs as "hauntingly lyrical (with ) the emphasis Ц on simplicity and an ageless craft."  Ms. Anthony was one of a handful of pioneers who brought serious modern dance to television in such programs as Lamp unto my feet  and Look up and live.  This unfortunately short-lived experiment of early net work broadcasting presented a unique opportunity to introduce dancers such as Bertram Ross, Jane Dudley, Robert Cohan and (Peter) Paul Taylor to a mass audience.
