Doris Humphrey 1895-1958
Humphrey was an important figure in the development of modern dance, but few people outside the dance world know about her. This documentary is an effort to change that and to bring to light her remarkable gifts as a choreographer and teacher. She created over 90 dances, many of them masterpieces, and her 1958 book on composition, “The Art of Making Dances,” for which she received a Guggenheim Award, is still regarded as one of the best books on choreography, used by colleges and dance departments everywhere. More Humphrey dances are revived throughout the world than those of other pioneers, and her work still speaks to today’s audiences.

“Doris Humphrey was one of the half dozen women who created what was incontestably the first American art form in our American history.”
— John Martin, New York Times, 1972
“As great as she (Doris Humphrey) was as a dancer, she is even greater as a choreographer, ranking her as perhaps the very best that America has.”
— Walter Terry, The Herald Tribune 1945
“As a choreographer, she is first of all.”
— Margaret Lloyd, Christian Science Monitor
