May 11 Birthday: Martha Graham

Martha Graham, choreographer
May 11, 1894-April 1, 1991

Ballet for Martha: Making Appalachian Spring by Jan Greenburg and Sandra Jordan, illustrated by Brian Floca (Flash Point, 2010)

This is the story behind the story of the collaboration of three artists—a choreographer, a composer and an artist—who created the magnificent ballet, Appalachian Spring. Thank you Martha Graham, Aaron Copeland and Isamu Noguchi.

The Martha Graham Center of Contemporary Dance continues her work.
