All of us at ADG would like to pay tribute to Margot C. Lehman (1926-2021) who passed away on August 3rd, 2021 shortly after her 95th birthday in July.
Margot was a fully committed Lifetime Member of the Guild, living her advocacy of dance through teaching, organizing, editing, conferences, and her love of the ADG. President from 1991-1993 Margot spearheaded conferences titled “Dance: A orce for Social Change,” (1991) and “Dance in a Global Community, Celebrating Differences” (1992). In 1993 along with Murial Manings who succeeded her as President she created the New Dance Group Gala Performance and Video of 18 historic modern dances, preserving them for posterity. She remained as mentor and consultant to the Guild's current board.

A longtime Marymount College (Tarrytown, NY) dance professor, she was also involved with the Dance Notation Bureau; and other organizations promoting dance performance and preservation. Born in Munich, Germany on July 23, 1926, Margot came to New York with her family in 1935. She attended Smith College (BA), where she majored in sociology and developed a passion for modern dance. She is also a graduate of Martha Hill’s master’s-degree program at New York University. Margot’s early career includes seven years of teaching and formative communication with Lucas Hoving, and performing with the Delakova-Berk Company and in children’s dance theater. She curated several exhibits of Barbara Morgan photographs, and helped edit Doris Humphrey: The Collected Works Vol.2, which was published by the Dance Notation Bureau. As well as co-producing the Guild’s The New Dance Group Gala Concert, Margot produced “Masters in Performance: Breaking the Age Barrier” (1996). In addition, she was Project Director/Editor of the Guild’s Branching Out: Oral Histories of the Founders of Six National Dance Organizations.

Margot was pre-deceased by her husband, Alan Corneretto, and her two brothers, Herbert and Edgar. She is survived by a step-son, six nieces and nephews, and their offspring.

THE AMERICAN DANCE GUILD, formed in 1956, was one of the first dance service organizations in the United States. Originally its goal was to support dance teachers with a yearly conference - providing a forum for the exchange of ideas and information and an opportunity to see master teachers demonstrate their work. The Guild grew rapidly. Soon the membership included individuals and organizations from nearly every state in the U.S. as well as from abroad and included performers, choreographers, writers, historians, critics, accompanists, therapists, notators, and educators at all levels. It produced DanceScope, a far reaching publication edited by Marcia Siegel with in-depth articles that covered all areas of dance from Ballet to Jazz to Indian Dance to Jose Limon, Martha Graham, Erick Hawkins, Trisha Brown, Meredith Monk, Yvonne Rainer and many more. In its newest incarnation, the American Dance Guild now focuses on offering performance opportunities both in annual festivals and “bare bones” low-tech productions, and awards a summer scholarship to Jacob’s Pillow
