Please write your questions for Mary Corpe here!
I guess its fitting that I should be first to Welcome you to pans people . com.
Im PJ or better known here as Lee & Mary Fan, Im sure many members wll agree, I am one of your greatest fans and also a great fan of the lovely Lee Ward, I have been ever since 1976.
No, questions for this entry, I would just like to welcome you and most of all to say Thank You for your Great work you did with Pans People, Ive been waiting a long time to say that, lol.
Mary, I think you are a great dancer and a very beautiful lady, I had a crush on you when I was 11 years old and was very sad when you were no longer on Top Of The Pops, you would of made a wonderful Ruby Flipper member in my opinion, anyway, good things are not forgotten....thats why I am still a fan of yours to this day, I cant wait to learn far more of your career, so let the questions role : )
Mary........you are wonderful!
PJ,you are surely Mary's,and Lee's,greatest fan.In all sincerity that last paragraph is lovely.I think she'd be touched to read that.
Hi Mary, I'm wondering if you had a favourite of all the numbers you danced on TOTP?
Please can you tell me what music you were into during the 1970s and what music you like today?, who are your favourites and what is your favourite song of all time?.
Hi Mary, Great to have you answering questions from the fans on here and being interviewed. May I ask about your feelings about leaving TOTP and not going on to Ruby Flipper? (I can't rival LMF but I did miss your weekly appearances too)
Hi Mary,welcome to this great site.No questions yet.It's just wonderful to have an opportunity to thank you for your great work with Pan's People.Can't wait to hear how you're doing.
Hello Mary,great to have you here for interview.What made you want to be a dancer & did you continue dancing after Pan's People?.Thankyou.
Hi mary ,just like to say i thought you were a wonderful dancer with pans people and you could have gone on and danced with the other troupes on totp i personally think,you had the looks ,youth and dance ability to have stayed on the show ,can you remember if you and the pans girls danced to the harold melvin song ,wake up everybody in march 76
Very true words Jez, I agree 100% with your comments on Mary.
Mary, If you get to see this, I would like to say how much I love the Festive Pans People routine for the song Barbados, Ive been raveing on about it for ages, it is my favourite all time Pans People routine.
You look so lovely and happy in this one, do you have any memories of performing the routine on TOTP?, I am amazed by those high kicks you did.
All the girls were amazing in this routine but for me, you really stood out, the Barbados routine is still being enjoyed today and it always puts a big smile on my face and makes me feel really happy, Thank You Mary : )
Mary,what is your greatest passion;dancing or choreography?Thank you,all the best.
What highlights do you have in both your dancing career,and in choreography ?Thanks Mary.
Please can you tell us your thoughts of having to wear that crazy Candle headwear?, that was so funny, what Flick put Pans People through at times, lol.
What are your thoughts on TOTP, after you sadly left the programme ( I for one was heartbroken ) did you ever continue to watch TOTP?, how do you feel about being remembered with such affection? and were you sad when TOTP came to an end in 2006?
In the months after you left TOTP, how do you feel about the changes going on with music, ie - the Punk/New Wave scene?.
What was it like doing the Morecambe and Wise Xmas show 1975? What were the rehearsals like with the comics?
Did you dance with a troupe called 'The Auto Angels' only there is a dancer in the line up who looks like you?
Hi TOTP FAN,
That sounds interesting, do you have a picture of the dancers you could share with us?, if its not Mary....then maybe she has a double out there....cool!
The girl with the long dark hair, I know Mary is Blonde but I think it looks like her
What ambitions do you have as a choreographer?Anything you would love to be involved in?
Hi mary ,i know you were probably aware that pans people were coming to an end a couple of months before youre final dance ,but can you remember why lee decided to leave the group four weeks before your last totp
Can you remember much from the filming of Pans Peoples final dance routines - More, More, More and Silver Star?, what were your feelings at that time?, I hope it wasnt too sad....it was for the fans.
I am really pleased you know about this website and you can see you still have fans who respect and care about you, the same goes for Lee Ward, I hope she is ok and that some day she will discover this fine website
Mary,could you tell us about when you met The Queen?Thank you.
Hi there Mary, you were a beautiful & graceful dancer, in Pan's People, one of my favourite PP dancers for sure, & it's a real shame you didn't go on to Join Ruby Flipper, then Legs & Co.!
In hindsight, do you think that it was the right decision for you to not continue as a TOTP dancer following the dispanding of PP, instead you moving on to bigger & better things as they say, meeting new people & facing new challenges, not to mention the change of scenery!
Most Dear Mary,
You have a family of fans here with two young children that loved the TV repeats of you and then looked for more online. My 6 year old daughter has drawn many pictures of you dancing and I will put them up in due course! She has just also gained her first UKA certificate in dance.
Thanks for agreeing to be interviewed, I hope that your professional profile will be raised as a result. Please talk fully and freely, we'd love to hear whatever you say about your family life past and present, let's hope that it's a nice sunny Friday morning, there's a good cup of coffee to hand and you feel like talking!
After all, until we get to queue to buy your autobiography, this is the best chance we'll get to hear your views.
That's all for now, but please could I return in a while?
Fresh Lettuce (dad, son and daughter)
Please list your favourite all time favourite songs of all time.
I have a photo stream on Flickr which features a collection of pictures from your Pans People days, have you ever found my little Flickr Tribute to yourself maybe while typeing your name into a search engine?, Ive often wondered if you have ever taken a look.
Hi everyone, just to let you know Mary was also in Zoo. Go to 'one for the dads' and look at Zoo dancing to Four Tops Dont walk away. I'm sure thats her
im might be wrong dave ,but i dont think its the same mary as was in pp ,im almost sure mary in zoo was the girl with the darker hair ,ill have to have another look at the routine to see if it was her or not
Sorry too TOTP FAN but I really don't think this is Mary Corpe in the Zoo Clip either although I can see the resemblance
Why not ask Mary via her Interview questions?, Ive never heard about Mary being in Zoo, I am not that up on Marys post Pans People career, but look forward to learning more once Marys interview is published.
Mary,can i ask you about your time with the dancers 'On Tap' during '81-'82?
