Mary Seidman, the gifted teacher, choreographer, and artistic director of Mary Seidman and Dancers, began her early training with Shirley Ririe and Joanne Woodbury from Utah, two master choreographers and experts in the field of dance education for young people. She also studied for many years with Merce Cunningham. A faculty member at the Mark Morris Dance Center since 2002, where she teaches children ages 4 to 18 and adults, she loves the joy of introducing all ages to the magic and discipline of dance. Since forming her company in 1990, her choreography has been described in The New York Times as “elegant and accessible,” “stunning…pure dance work with threads of emotional nuance woven into the whole,” and “cutting edge choreography and bravura execution… be prepared for the sacred and profane, Seidman spares no emotions.” She continues as a mentor/facilitator of PreK teachers with the NYCDOE through the Dance Education Laboratory (DEL) program at the 92nd Street Y.
