Summary
Interviews with twelve of the dancer-choreographers who participated in Tina Croll and James Cunningham's dance work From the horse's mouth at the Joyce SoHo, New York, in April 1998. Most of the interviewees relate how they began to dance and choreograph, and discuss their recent activities. Deborah Jowitt, who is also a dance critic, tells how she began to write about dance. Cathryn Williams describes how experience as a dancer can benefit an individual in a second career in business. Carmen de Lavallade recalls Lester Horton's special gifts as a teacher, and describes how she made the transition from dancing to acting. Muriel Manings looks back upon her experiences as student, performer and teacher at New Dance Group in New York. James Cunningham remembers the inspiration of Dorothy Goulding, with whom he worked as a child.
