Product Description

From Squirt Blossom to Goddess traces Helen McGehee's development from her childhood in the quiet, conservative city of Lynchburg, Virginia, to soloist in the Martha Graham Company. Thanks to her family, Helen grew up surrounded by art, acquired a passion for sewing, and an even greater passion for, and extensive knowledge of Greek mythology - all essential preparation for her future career. The location of Randolph-Macon Woman's College in her hometown was even more fortuitous in Helen's development as a dancer than her family. It was at the college that Helen began dancing, experienced performances by some of the great dance companies of the US, met Martha Graham, accepted her challenge to forget about being a Latin teacher and, much to her family's horror, decided to plunge into the uncertain world of dance. Aside from the perils of surviving in a precarious profession, working with a genius like Martha Graham had its own unique challenges and tribulations.. Price: $35.10
