Pas de résumé français disponible

Bessie Schonberg danced with Martha Graham until a knee injury forced her to quit and turn to teaching. For the next 70 years, she inspired and challenged other dancers and choreographers; Merce Cunningham, Jerome Robbins, Meredith Monk, Lucinda Childs and Ronald K. Brown are just a few who were influenced by her passion for dance. The prestigious New York Dance Award, the Bessie Award, was named after her.  Bessie tells us her own incredible story intercut with personal and archival footage as well as film of her teaching choreography at Juilliard, Dance Theater Workshop and Jacob’s Pillow.
