Marie de la Palme (1959-2014): An Illuminated Heart



Marie De La Palme-Mulroy, IVC Professor of Dance passed away on December 14 at age 55 after a long struggle with breast cancer. "Madame De La Palme," as she was called by her students, was a wonderful colleague, a generous and radiant presence in the classroom, on the stage and in the world.  She is survived by her husband, son and daughter — and her legions of students and colleagues.
