Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this well-illustrated work, Pauline Koner “traces the course” of her remarkable career from her days as a student of Michel Fokine in the 1920s, through further studies with Angel Cansino and the brilliantly influential Michio Ito, to a period as a dance soloist before World War II that make her reputation. After the war she entered a productive collaboration with Doris Humphrey, and then began the epochal performances with Jose Limon. She continued to perform until 1972, and her influence as a teacher and choreographer is still widely felt. Her book is an instructive and charming chronicle of this remarkable career, as well as a record of performances and interpretations that have gone far to mold modern dance into its present state of grace.

Book News Annotation:

The autobiography of a notable figure in 20th century dance. Koner has toured the world and worked with many great artists. An important document in dance history. Illustrated. No bibliography.
