Biographical / Historical
Walter Bodmer was Trustee and Chairman of the Board of Directors at the Laban Centre for Movement and Dance. His connection with Laban originated with his mother Sylvia Bodmer (1902-1989), who gained a reputation as one of the most distinguished exponents of modern dance and movement. Having danced as one of Rudolf von Laban's pupils in Germany during the 1920s, she continued with her career in dance, choreography and teaching after moving to England. Laban Centre for Music and Dance merged with Trinity College of Music to form Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in 2005.
