Description
 
The story of the most influential innovator of 20th-century dance. Before Martha Graham shook up the world of dance, it had changed little for 500 years. Choreographers -- people who create dances -- were expected to follow the rigid structure of classical ballet. Martha Graham, however, sought to free dance from these strict, old rules. She started a dance company in 1926 and choreographed more than 200 dances. Her dance company, which still performs today, and her revolutionary dances carry on the legacy of the most important figure in the history of modern dance. Part of the Book Report Biographies series which focuses on fascinating people who have changed their own culture and the world. B&W photos. Juvenile audiences. Reinforced lib. ed.
