    • La Meri (1899-1988) studied and performed all over the world. She made her New York debut in 1928 and first danced at Jacob's Pillow in 1940.
    • La Meri was also a major cornerstone of the Pillow's faculty for decades, and she served as a member of the Board of Directors.
    • While she presented the dances of many cultures, she specialized in Spanish and Indian forms.
    • A particularly memorable offering was her interpretation of Swan Lake using Hindu gesture technique.
