Agnes de Mille was born in New York City into a well-connected family of theater professionals

Agnes de Mille was born in New York City into a well-connected family of theater professionals. After suffering from a near death stroke, she went on to write five books: Reprieve (which outlined the experience), Where the Wings Grow, America Dances, Portrait Gallery, and Martha: The Life and Work of Martha Graham.

Agnes' paternal grandfather, Henry de Mille, was a onetime North Carolina minister who left the pulpit to write plays with a message. Agnes' early schooling in California was at the small private Hollywood School for Girls. He took as his partner David Belasco, one of the most successful aywrights of the early days of this century.

writings of choreographer and dancer Agnes de Mille (1905-1993) .

I am VERY taken with the extensive autobiographical writings of choreographer and dancer Agnes de Mille (1905-1993). I read them all and recommend them highly, though if you're not interested in ballet or modern dance you may find them less interesting (my wife read one or two only). This book in particular is probably the most interesting of de Mille's volumes for the general reader.

The acclaimed and influential dancer-choreographer recounts the circumstances of the paralyzing stroke she suffered in 1975, her return to the stage, and the realignment of her life occasioned by those experiences
