Mary Anthony is one of the unrecognized heroes in the history of modern dance. During the time she taught for Hanya Holm, she trained Alwin Nikolais and later in her own school, her teaching was an influence on the lives of many dancers. Despite her influence, Mary is not recognized on the modern dance history tree. Hopefully this biography will change that and bring this hidden diamond into the light for all to see.
A Dancer's Journey - It All Began with a Lie covers Mary Anthony's childhood, as well as the joys and hardships she experienced in the course of achieving her dreams. Included is the creation of her school, and later, her company. The book explores her golden years, her struggles, and surviving her greedy landlord in New York City. These events illustrate her tenacity and ability to withstand and conquer the many challenges in her life.
