Sample text

When at last she felt a need to strike out on her own, she left the Denishawn School and moved to New York, taking a teaching job at the Eastman School of Theater. During that time she developed her own unique style of dance and began to give solo recitals. In 1929, Graham founded the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance and launched a new style of dance, one The Long Search for Success literary elite. It was not uncommon for Charlie Chaplin or Douglas Fairbanks to visit. Anna often invited concert artists to her home, such as opera singer Rosa Ponselle and violinist Efrem Zimbalist.

Aspiring artists, writers, Single Taxers, women interested in forming community clubs—they all came through Anna George de Mille’s parlor. Surrounded by a wealth of talent from a variety of disciplines, Agnes received almost constant artistic and intellectual stimulation. The one drawback for Agnes was that it became more difficult for her to find the time and place to practice her ballet without distraction. She also dreaded the lonely, boring practice, made more acute by her feeling that her technical skills had not really improved.

Most importantly, Agnes learned that no one ever sat down and rested. She learned how to rest her insteps by lying on her back and pressing her feet flat up against the wall, how to bind up her toes so they wouldn’t bleed through her ballet shoes, how to overcome exhaustion through mental toughness — and she learned never to miss daily practice, no matter what. Despite her psychological and emotional desire to excel as a dancer, she just couldn’t overcome the limitations of her physique. The ideal shape for a ballet dancer is a long-limbed body with a small torso.
