Acclaimed playwright, actor, director and Steppenwolf Theatre Company member- Austin Pendleton along with Ballroom Champions, Pierre Dulaine & Yvonne Marceau.
Dulaine & Marceau have been faculty members at both the School of American Ballet and The Juilliard School, as well as guest teachers at Alvin Ailey. In 2005 they received the Americans for the Arts Award for education.
Most recently their influence has extended into films, with the major motion picture, Take The Lead. The film, starring Antonio Banderas as Pierre Dulaine, was inspired by Pierre’s teaching experience in schools. Ms. Marceau has choreographed for various companies and events, including the Julia Roberts film Mona Lisa Smile.
“Ms. Marceau and Mr. Dulaine are dancing dreams, and the way they melt into and out of each other’s arms ought to serve as a required course in partnering for the young.”
