Maudelle Bass, a concert dancer of the late 1930’s and 40’s, died on June 11 (1989) at the Muhlenberg Regional Medical Center in Plainfield, N.J., after a short illness. She was 81 years old.
Miss Bass danced in Agnes de Mille’s ”Black Ritual,” presented by Ballet Theater in its first season in 1940, and appeared with Pearl Primus in the 1950’s. She was a model for the photographer Edward Weston and the painter Diego Rivera.
Miss Bass was born in Early County, Georgia, and, according to Joe Nash, the dance historian, was the first black dancer to study with Lester Horton, the Los Angeles-based modern dance choreographer. She continued to perform in lecture-demonstrations in New York City into her 70’s, and was honored in ”A Celebration of Women in Dance” at the Thelma Hill Performing Arts Center in New York in 1983.
