Martha Graham: A Dancer’s Life by Russell Freedman

In her day, Martha Graham was the DEAL. Paula Abdul and every other smooth-mover can thank Graham for paving the way for them way back in the1930’s and 40’s. She is known as the mother of modern dance, and she choreographed dances for over 70 years, right up until her death at age 96 in 1991. Not only was she a dance teacher to both Liza Minelli and Madonna,but she was also a wild woman who romanced young male dancers and broke every classical dance rule. Russell Freedman has filled this bio with stunning b&W photos that really give you a sense of how Martha Graham’s moves started a dance revolution. She was a rebel of the highest order and in the best sense of the word. You’ll want to read this one just for fun…
