The beautiful dancer Marge Champion, known well for the great team of Marge and Gower Champion in those great MGM movie musicals of the 1940s and 1950s, will tell her story of being there in that great era, who she knew, and how she knew them. And she knew them ALL!
Miss Champion is well-known to film audiences worldwide to this day. Starring with her late husband Director/choreographer Gower in Show Boat, Everything I Have is Yours and Lovely to Look At, the Champions became the stars of these films with their beautiful dancing as art set to music. (Gower Champion, Marge’s husband, is well-remembered as the great director of Hello, Dolly and 42ndStreet).
There are some items about Miss Champion that you might not have known, which will make you want to learn more. For example, before teaming with Gower, Marge had a long history with the Walt Disney Studios. As a matter of fact, Marge was hired by Walt Disney as a dance model for their very first animated feature film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937). Her movements were used to enhance the animated Snow White’s movements to simulate reality. She later modelled in the same fashion for the Blue Fairy in Pinocchio, Maid Marion in Robin Hood and the Dancing Hippo in Fantasia.
On Sunday, October 5th at 5:00 PM, Marge Champion and Richard Skipper will sit down at the Spiral Theater Studio to discuss Marge’s vast and wonderful career and how she is doing today, at 95 years young. A Q&A with the audience and “meet and greet” follows.
