De Mille flying high as
The Cowgirl in her Rodeo
In the April 1957 issue of Dance Magazine, we reported on that year’s Dance Magazine Awards,
one of which went to Agnes de Mille. The dancer-choreographer first leapt to prominence after
choreographing—and starring in—her now-iconic Rodeo for the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo in 1942.
Lauded for its realism, the “cowboy ballet” was such a success that Rodgers and Hammerstein invited de
Mille to choreograph the original Broadway production of Oklahoma! Accepting her award, she said, “I
think the function of saying to somebody: ‘You don’t have to take leave of the human race in order to be
interested in dancing. It’s a normal expression for people’ is a worthy one. I am glad to have had some
part in doing that.”
