Deborah Zall received her training at the Martha Graham School and pursued an independent career as a solo performer and choreographer. In addition to her own works, her repertory includes dances, many created especially for her, by Jane Dudley, Stuart Hodes, Igal Perry, Ethel Winters, Norman Walker, Anna Sokolow, and others, usually highlighting her strong dramatic qualities.

As a member of the Denishawn Repertory Dancers, Zall received critical acclaim for her performances of dances by Graham and Ruth St. Denis. She appeared in concert numerous times with her mentor Bertram Ross, who gave her the legacy of his work, which she makes available for staging.

Zall has appeared throughout the U.S. and at the Edinburgh Festival, the Cannes Festival and the Biennal de la Danse in France, Contempo Tanz in Guatemala, south Bank Center and The Place in London, and throughout West Germany, where she was hailed as "a great artist...a remarkable missionary of modern dance."

Ms. Zall has recently staged Anna Sokolow's "Kaddish" for 10-member ensembles at the Middlesex University in London, the Alvin Ailey School in NYC, and the NYS Summer School of the Arts in Saratoga Springs, NY.
