About the Author

Rose Eichenbaum, a dance teacher for more than 25 years, is one of the most highly respected photojournalists working in the dance field today. Her articles and photographs have appeared in nationally acclaimed publications, including Dance, Dance Spirit, Dance Teacher, Point, and Dancer. She lives in Encino, California.


"Eichenbaum's firsthand knowledge of dance, her passion for dancing and the people who do it, and her appreciation of the minutiae of lives, both everyday and Olympian, all combine to open windows onto the soul of dance and the lives of those who helped to define and shape the art in 20th-century America."--Jennifer Dunning, dance critic, New York Times

"The uncanny intelligence and grace with which Rose Eichenbaum has exposed the intention and essence of each performer move me. Then there are her words. Rose is a storyteller, and she tells the stories of the greatest American choreographers of the second half of the 20th-century. Her contribution to the preservation of our art form is a gift."--Barbara Kaplan, publisher, Dance magazine

"The unique pairing of provocative photographs with personal and informal biographical interviews is full of important insights into both the art and craft of dance. An appealing book rich with significant content."--Allegra Fuller Snyder, professor emerita and former chair of dance at the University of California, Los Angeles
