Notice biographique

Margaret Alice Hample was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on February 1, 1927. She was one of the first students of the Winnipeg Ballet Club in 1938, with which she danced until 1948. She then danced in Montreal and New York before moving to London, England, where she appeared in musical comedy, cabarets, ballet and British television and film. She returned to Winnipeg as a guest artist, where she met and married John Piasecki, the publicity chair and Royal Winnipeg Ballet Board member. During this time she also appeared in Rainbow Stage and CBC television productions. She retired from dance in 1958 to raise her family.
She received a Bachelor of Science Degree in 1948 and used it for her second career in Laboratory Technology in Winnipeg. She was also involved in real estate, retail sales, and banking in both Winnipeg and Edmonton. In 1989, she became one of the founding members of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet Alumni Association, and served several terms as president. She was instrumental in the creation of the RWB archives and initiated the Winnipeg Dance Preservation Initiative. Margaret Piasecki passed away May 17, 2007 in Winnipeg. A scholarship for the RWB School Professional Division was created in her name.
