Marnie Thomas

After graduation from Sarah Lawrence College in 1958, Marnie Thomas joined the Martha Graham Dance Company, touring and performing with the Company, teaching at the Graham School, and was privileged to be part of the first generation of women to perform Ms. Graham’s own roles as Graham began choosing successors for her earlier repertory reconstructions. In 1968, with her husband/partner, David Wood, and their three children, Ms Thomas relocated to establish the Dance Major at University of California Berkeley. In addition to choreographing, teaching, and administrating for the dance program, Ms Thomas served as Chair of the Department of Dramatic Art, Chairman of the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on the Arts, and received three Isadora Duncan Awards for her contribution to the professional dance scene in the San Francisco Bay Area. Throughout the California years she sustained an ongoing relationship with the Graham organization, and upon retirement from the University, Ms Thomas returned to New York to serve as Director of the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance from 2003 through 2006. Currently, Ms Thomas serves as a consultant and rehearsal coach for the Graham Company and is a faculty member of the Martha Graham School, Peridance International, and Adelphi University.
