This landmark book about Doris Humphrey, one of the most influential pioneers in the development of modern dance.

Doris Batcheller Humphrey (October 17, 1895 – December 29, 1958) was an American dancer and choreographer of the early twentieth century. Along with her contemporaries Martha Graham and Katherine Dunham, Humphrey was one of the second generation modern dance pioneers who followed their forerunners – including Isadora Duncan, Ruth St. Denis, and Ted Shawn – in exploring the use of breath and developing techniques still taught today.

Doris Humphrey (1895-1958) was one of the great figures in the development of modern dance-as a performer, teacher, choreographer, and theoretician.

Includes an introduction by John Martin and a foreword by Charles Humphrey Woodford, son of Doris Humphrey.

Therefore, I picked up An Artist First (1966), an autobiography of Doris Humphrey. I wanted to explore her own thoughts and philosophy of her life, and I was astonished to find myself relating to her experience from the first page of the book. Miss Ruth noticed Doris in a private lesson. Doris eventually received an offer of her dreams to join the Denishawn and become a teacher and a dancer. Miss Ruth also recognized her ability of musicality. Selma Jeanne Cohen, who wrote the part 2 of the book, hints that New Dance, a highly praised composition of Doris, might have been inspired by her love for Leo.

In 1925-1926, Humphrey toured Asia with Denishawn.

This landmark book about Doris Humphrey, one of the most influential pioneers in the development of modern dance, tells of her struggles and triumphs in exploring new forms of dance; of Humphrey's break with Denishawn to establish her company with Charles Weidman; of creating a new dance technique which has been seminal to the training of modern dancers; of choreographing in the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s; and of creating a choreographic aesthetic that has been a primary influence on subsequent generations of dancemakers.
  • Inspiring.

  • Those interested in and learning the infamous Humphrey-Weidman technique in modern dance get a good overview of the life of Doris Humphrey. The book also has many photos of this incredibly beautiful woman, who not only originated one of the most original techniques of modern dance in the 20th century, but also was a dance theoreticain/philosopher. The only disappointing aspect of the book was that one interested in the influence of the philosopher Friedrich Neitzsche on her dance technique will find only a brief discussion. But the book is fascinating reading, and after reading it one feels even more admiration for this remarkable woman and dancer.
