What a beautiful lady and dancer. Marge's movies and tv shows showed a wonderful talent that could not be duplicated today by anyone. It was amazing how she could dance such difficult steps with such ease. Her family and the world has lost a treasure. Jane M., Austerlitz, NY

I met Marge Champion a few years ago when we hosted an event around the documentary, Keep Dancing, in Brooklyn, NY. Many of our Seniors came out to this wonderful event with Marge. She was so gracious to all that day. I will never forget being with her that afternoon. What an amazing human being she was. Now she is dancing among the stars in the heavens!

When I was a young girl and musicals.wete very popular in.the theatre at that time----
The biggest stars were Marge
Champion, along with her husband at the time, Gower.
They were wonderful dancers for many years. Big stars!
Appeared in many movies, and I saw them all. It was a.nice way for the parents to get the kids out of the.house! I gladly went
I put myself in Marge's shoes and really believed.i could dance like she did.
Dearest Marge, I adored you and you danced.so effortlessly,
beautifully, gracefully and this little girl was memorized.
RIP LOVELY LADY. Dance all around HEAVEN. Glorious paradise. What an audience you will have! They will love it.
Dance dance dance Marge.
Condolence to everyone that loved you.
A little girl who loved you.

Have long loved this Dancing Queen. Her musical dances with Gower are some of the best dance scenes to ever come out of Hollywood. One of the last Hollywood greats. RIP Marge.
