Anna Kisselgoff Lecture and Bio

Anna Kisselgoff, who was the New York Times' chief dance critic from 1977-2005, will discuss "A Lifetime of Appreciating Dance," with a question and answer session to follow, on Wednesday, November 8, at 7:30pm in the new Frances Daly Fergusson Dance Theater in Kenyon Hall.   The talk is free and open to all on a first come first served basis.  A reception will follow. 

Kisselgoff studied ballet with Jean Yazvinsky, a dancer from Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes. After graduating from Bryn Mawr College, she studied Russian at the School of Oriental Languages in Paris, and then earned master’s degrees in journalism and modern European history from Columbia University. Ms. Kisselgoff began her writing career in Paris at Agence France-Presse, and became a freelancer for the international edition of the New York Time in 1965. Among her honors, the French government named her a Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters, Queen Margrethe of Denmark made her a Knight of the Dannebrog, and Columbia University's Graduate School of Arts and Science conferred to her the Dean’s Award for Distinguished Achievement.

This event is co-sponsored by the Department of Dance and the Office of the Dean of Faculty
