Abstract:

In a memoir Lance Olsen calls "fascinating, horrifying, unfalteringly honest," the author draws from her experiences as a modern dancer in New York City during the nineties. Trained at the prestigious Martha Graham Center, she intertwines accounts of her own and other dancers' lives with essays on modern dance history. Her luminous prose spotlights this passionate, often brutal world. Scarred, strained, and tough, bearing witness to the discipline demanded by the art form, this book provides a powerful, acidly comic record of what it is to love, and eventually leave, a life centered on dance.
