Hearing, smelling, seeing, touching, tasting--our five senses allow us to experience the world in so many ways!

Isadora’s lively art reveals the power and delight of each sense.

The Joffrey Ballet, acclaimed as a groundbreaking book when it was published, tells a story that was kept largely hidden from public view for many years. The company made ballets about beatniks, erotic multimedia goddesses, sea nymphs, clowns, slackers, radicals and jocks, thrilling audiences as much as it often outraged critics. When Robert Joffrey, the son of a Muslim Afghani, founded the Joffrey Ballet in 1956 with Gerald Arpino, he exploded the boundaries of classical ballet. The company made ballets about beatniks, erotic multimedia goddesses, sea nymphs, clowns, slackers, radicals and jocks, thrilling audiences as much as it often outraged critics. The Joffrey Ballet, acclaimed as a groundbreaking book when it was published, tells a story that was kept largely hidden from public view for many years. It also provides a provocative look through the rear view mirror at thirty years of social upheaval in America. The Joffrey Ballet began in mid-century ebullience, a troupe of six dancers driving cross-country in a station wagon; in the ensuing years they performed behind the Iron Curtain, made the cover of Time magazine, became hippies and ascetics, and lost colleagues to the Vietnam War and AIDS. Dance critic Sasha Anawalt, director of Annenberg Arts Journalism Programs at USC weaves a meticulously researched cultural biography that the New York Times called “A milestone in dance writing.” The 2011 film "Joffrey: Mavericks of American Dance" continues the story through rare footage and is available on DVD through Hybrid Cinema.

What becomes of ballet dancers when they finally leave the stage, when their last curtain falls? Maja Langsdorff, journalist, writer and a former ballet dancer, interviewed 27 former dancers and recorded their life stories from their first ballet steps to their lives after dance. At the time of their interviews they were between 21 and 62 years old, their careers had ended from three months to 34 years ago. Dancers give a lot, if not everything, in the performances. They live their lives in the limelight. In ballet, profession and calling are united: passion and suffering are often close to each other. For most dancers, their time is up at thirty, thirty-five. They disappear from view. One doesn't hear anything about them anymore; as if they were swallowed up by the earth. This book investigates their fates. These short biographies show what formed them, what moved them, what influenced them. And the portraits leave no doubt, that dancers are special people; even if they no longer dance.
