Summary Martha Hill was a visionary who fought against great odds to make contemporary and modern dance a legitimate art form in America. In a career spanning most of the twentieth century, she became a behind-the-scenes leader in the dance world, and the founding director of Juilliard's Dance Division. Here is a celebration of dance and an examination of the passion to keep it alive.
