Marilee left Sunny Hills High School after her sophomore year to study ballet and dance in New York City. Eventually she danced for George Balanchine and the New York City Ballet.
Years later she became a painter and her work has attracted international acclaim. (Search for Marilee Stern on Google.)
Marilee lives in the Pacific Northwest and and has been a ballet teacher and artist.
One of Marilee's most gifted and successful ballet students has been the celebrated Miss Ariana Lallone.
I think we all remember Marilee affectionately as a lovely, unique young lady.
