Marie Salle

Marie Sallé was one of the most revolutionary and successful dancers of her age. She danced in several Handel Operas and in works by Rebel and Rameau among others, performing expressive, dramatic dances during a period when displays of technical virtuosity were more popular. The first woman to choreograph the ballets in which she appeared, she anticipated the late 18th-century reforms of Jean-Georges Noverre. Catherine Bott explores the life and impact of Sallé and the music to which she danced.
