Jeanne de Salzmann

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jeanne Matignon de Salzmann born Jeanne Allemand often addressed as
Madame de Salzmann (1889 25 May 1990) was a close pupil of G. I. Gurdjie,
recognized as his deputy by many of Gurdjie's other pupils. She was responsible
for transmitting the movements and teachings of Gurdjie through the Gurdjie
Foundation of New York, the Gurdjie Institute of Paris and other formal and
informal groups throughout the world.
Madame de Salzmann began her career at the Conservatory of Geneva, studying
piano, orchestral conduction and musical composition. Later a student of Emile
Jaques-Dalcroze in Germany from 1912, she taught dance and rhythmic
movements. She met her husband Alexandre de Salzmann in Hellerau at
Dalcroze's school. With him she had a daughter, Boussique. The Russian
revolution triggered a move for Jeanne and her husband Alexandre to Tiis,
Georgia where she continued to teach.
In 1919, Thomas de Hartmann introduced the de Salzmanns to George Gurdjie,
a relationship that would last until Gurdjie's death in 1949. She worked with
Gurdjie for nearly 30 years.
In December 1949, together with Henriette H. Lannes, Jane Heap she initiated
the startup of an organization, which would eventually become the Gurdjie
Foundation, to continue the Gurdjie Work. On 6 October 1955 The Society for
Research into the Development of Man Ltd. was founded. This organization later
changed to The Gurdjie Society Ltd., on the 17 June 1957. She led the
organization and continued Gurdjies teachings, emphasizing work with the
movements, until she died, 101 years old in 1990.
Her son by Gurdjie,
Michel de Salzmann born 1923, took over the leadership
of the organization.

Michel de Salzmann was Gurdjies son. See Frank R. Sinclair: Without Benet of
