Summary
Dorothy Bird, who danced with Martha Graham's company from 1931 to 1937, teaches exercises and movement sequences, many of them learned from Graham in this period. At the beginning of the class, Bird reminisces about Graham, the Cornish School in Seattle, and Nellie Cornish ; and discusses Isadora Duncan's contributions to dance, and the popularity of the Delsarte method. In a question-and-answer session she recounts her memories of George Balanchine, Anita Alvarez, Louis Horst, and Graham's work at Neighborhood Playhouse. The class ends with exercises in crying and laughing.
