Annotation:
One of Martha Graham's early students remembers her first lesson, in 1930, and the way Graham changed her life--for better and for worse. Dorothy Bird left Graham's company to become an acclaimed dancer in Broadway musicals and a teacher of dance, but her memoir focuses on her memories of and her admiration for the great choreographer.
