Phyllis Sues was born in New York City on April 4th, 1923. At the age of 14, Phyllis had her first ballet lesson and from that day on, she knew dance was for her. In 1941, Phyllis performed as a Spanish dancer in a USO tour for the Air Corps. From 1942 to 1948 she performed in five long-run Broadway shows and also danced with the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo. In 1948, Phyllis met performer and dancer, Donald Weissmuller. They were a successful dance duo and toured the world. In 1953, Phyllis married comic actor, Alan Sues and they performed together in comedy sketches in New York and Los Angeles. Phyllis continued to dance on TV until 1968. After moving to LA, with former late husband, Alan Sues, Phyllis started designing her own line of women’s high fashion sportswear. Her company ran for 22 years, under her own label.
In 2003, the passion of her life gave birth to music. Her instrument, the piano. Her genres, Jazz and Tango. Not only did Phyllis learn to dance the Tango at 83, she also composed and produced her own music. Phyllis brought together an extraordinary group of musicians including, Pablo Motta, Coco Trivisonno, Ronnie Manaog, Marcello Caceras and Chris Trujillo, and at 87, produced six beautiful Tangos and debuted her CD “Tango Insomnia.” Phyllis also produced a Jazz CD entitled, "Scenes of Passion” which she also performs on piano and sings vocals with Scarlet Rouge.
Now, at 89, Phyllis dances with her teacher and dance partner; performing in shows and competing. She is inspiring audiences and dancers nationwide. Phyllis practices Yoga everyday, which she started at age 85. Yoga helps her maintain the balance, core strength and elasticity, she needs to continue dancing. Phyllis is currently working on her new CD. Her music is available on iTunes, CD Baby and Amazon.
