This exhibition has been culled from the Judy Jarvis archives held by Dance Collection Danse. How fortunate we are that Judy Jarvis was an archivist by nature in that from a young age she voraciously saved and organized significant documents and memorabilia. This is particularly true with regard to her professional life. Her collection includes photographs, correspondence, posters, programmes, essays, notebooks, newspaper clippings, paintings, scrapbooks, video and audio tapes, books, props and costumes and company files.

For this exhibition I have selected articles and images that, in combination with Biographical text, will hopefully allow you the opportunity to either make the acquaintance of or reminisce over this intriguing Canadian dance figure.

While Jarvis was a significant player in the evolution of modern dance in Canada, she was also an important link to the past by virtue of her unique ties to the great European champion of modern dance, Mary Wigman. Included in this exhibition are examples of exclusive photos, correspondence and tape recorded dialogue illuminating the important relationship between these two dance artists of different generations.

If you encountered Judy Jarvis as a performer, teacher, director or friend, I invite you to visit the forum on this site to record your impressions and anecdotes about her and also to read the memories left by other visitors to the site.

I hope that you enjoy perusing the exhibition and that you will continue to visit this site as it evolves to reflect the fascinating world of Judy Jarvis.

A Note on how to use the site: As you can see in the text above, a number of words are in a contrasting colour. When these words are clicked-on you will be taken to a point of interest in the site, a photo or a media file. These links can be found throughout the site.

The menu. Because of the vast amount of Biographical information, the menu was created to give the visitor one-click access to specific times in Ms. Jarvis' life. For those who wish to read through the Bio material page by page, we have added links at the end of each Bio page's text. Clicking on the "Next Page" link will take you to the page that follows in the chronology of her life.

You will also notice some pages have images in the left sidebar. Like the images in the Gallery and Press sections, when these thumbnails are clicked-on you will be shown the full image. Though most browsers will display the graphics in a "pop-up" of sufficient size, you may find that some adjustments of the window dimensions will need to be made. You should be able to do this by clicking-on and dragging the bottom right corner of the window. Additionally, some browsers will allow you to adjust the window size by clicking and dragging on the outer edge of the window OR by clicking-on the "maximize" button (the button with the square symbol in the top right corner, for Windows 95 - XP, or the green button in the top left hand corner, for Mac OS).
