Graham and dancers from the Graham company discuss the evolution of a technique that revolutionized the world of dance, and a syllabus outlines how to teach the Graham style

Horosko, a former ballerina and current education editor for Dance Magazine , compiled these brief reminiscences by Graham's students and company members, many of whom are mentioned by Graham in her recent autobiography Blood Memory ( LJ 8/91). Anna Sokolow, Sophie Maslow, Jane Dudley, Erick Hawkins, and John Butler, among others, became important artists, teachers, and choreographers in their own right and, as such, provide unique insights into Graham's movement theories and teaching techniques. Modern dance students and teachers will be especially pleased with the precise physical descriptions of specific Graham contractions and falls, and the syllabus of Graham movements. Recommended for performing arts libraries.
