Artistic Director Margo Sappington Departs ADM21
After three and a half years with ADM21, Artistic Director Margo Sappington announces her resignation from the organization.
Sappington will continue to fulfill her freelance choreography commitments and her work with Valentina Kozlova's International Ballet Competition.
"I have enjoyed my time with ADM21 and remain firmly committed to the importance of preserving and presenting important choreography from Broadway shows and classic movie musicals," she remarked.
ADM21 was founded in February of 2012 in order to continue the legacy of the late Lee Theodore and The American Dance Machine, to ensure that significant musical theater choreography and the techniques that propelled such works, could be preserved, studied and shared as we move into the 21st century.
Since then, ADM21 has had the opportunity to demonstrate the significance of that original concept through our showings and appearances. Artists such as Susan Stroman, Donna McKechnie, Robert La Fosse, Marge Champion, Nicole Fosse and Kathryn Doby reconstructed the original choreography of Michael Bennett's "Music and the Mirror" from A Chorus Line, Jerome Robbins' "Mr. Monotony" from Jerome Robbins' Broadway, Susan Stroman's "Simply Irresistible" from Contact and Bob Fosse's "Beat me Daddy Eight to the Bar" from Big Deal. And most recently, audiences were delighted to witness "Turkey Lurkey Time" from Promises, Promises recreated by the original featured dancers, Margo Sappington, Donna McKechnie and Baayork Lee.
