Throwback Thursday and Liane Daydé

Throwback Thursday and Liane Daydé

Born in Paris On February 27, 1932, Liane Daydé joined the Paris Opera School when she was eight years old, and became a corps de ballet member when she was fourteen. By the time she was nineteen she was a star dancer.

In 1959 she joined the Compagnie du Marquis de Cuevas and in 1963 she founded Le Grand Ballet Classique de France which toured the world.

She appeared in films such as Mayerling (1968), La Septieme Porte (1947), Les Malheirs de Sophie (1946), and Us Kids. She also appeared on television in a movie western playing herself, called Das Lacheln im Westen (1965). She also appeared more than once on the Dinah Shore Chevy Show (1959-1960).

Beginning in 1979 she opened her own school in Paris and devoted her life to teaching.

Here is a fascinating article she wrote in January 2013 that describes her dance training: http://www.augustevestris.fr/spip.php?article281
