The woman who started it all is the woman Mary Ann calls her second mother, her first teacher, Camille Chrysler. “My family moved a lot in the same area, so when I discovered I could make friends being at a dance studio, it became home to me. I realized later, that you can rediscover yourself with each new dance, each time you walk into a studio.”
“There were much better dancers than I was in school,” Lamb notes. “I remember one of the amazing ballet dancers in a learning moment with Camille asking why I was dancing and her response was, “Mary Ann is an artist.” Lamb goes on to say, “Camille really pushed art in dance. Today, it’s more like a sport. She pushed us to choreograph young. The first time I actually won an award, was for choreography, which is such an amazing gift I got from her. My entire life was based in the dance studio.” Chrysler knew Lamb was made for Broadway and pushed her there.
“She opened dreams I could never imagine.”
