Published by DanceBooks

This revised edition updates the popular first edition. It is about geniuses who created a new dance form - American modern dance.

While as different from each other in style, background, and influence as ballet is from modern dance, they were united in purpose

Each wanted to create a new dance form that was serious, unique to the United States, and not classical ballet

They usually danced barefooted, wore comfortable costumes, and danced about subjects they cared about. Individualists with a touch of the evangelist, their life stories captivate the imagination
