Martha Graham Graham identified a method of breathing and impulse control she called "contraction and release." For her, movement originated in the tension of a contracted muscle, and continued in the flow of energy released from the body as the muscle relaxed. This method of muscle control gave Graham's dances and dancers a hard, angular look, one that was very unfamiliar to dance audiences used to the smooth, lyrical bodily motions of Isadora Duncan and Ruth St. Denis.
HOBBIES: I love dancing! I started to dance ballet at the age of five and danced ballet for approximately fifteen years. After ballet I began to dance lyrical jazz, modern and show dance. Dancing has taught me persistence, dedication and hard working attitude. Dance is my passion and the love of my life.
