Source: Funeral Program and his family. I was an Archie Savage dancer.

Archie Savage made a vital contribution to African-American Dance in the United States. Born in Norfolk, Virginia on April 19, 1919 and raised in New York’s Harlem. Archie’s first introduction to the world of modern dance came when he joined the “Hemsley Winfield’s Dance Troupe” in the 1930’s. In 1939, Archie joined the “Katherine Dunham Dance Troupe” and later was a part of a nation wide stage production of “Cabin in the Sky”. He became Ms. Dunham’s dance partner and also helped created what is known as the “Afro/Cuban” dance form. He has appeared in 23 films here and abroad and 5 Broadway stage Productions including the original South Pacific. Archie was a pioneer of the African-American Dance History. His legacy will live on and he will always be remembered for the contribution he made to the world of dance. He died in Los Angeles, California on February 4, 2003. Archie was 88 years old.
