General Note
Includes index.
"Born into a family of successful playwrights and producers, Agnes de Mille was determined to be an actress. Then one day she witnessed the Russian ballet dancer Anna Pavlova, and her life was altered forever. Hypnotized by Pavlova's beauty, in that moment she dedicated herself to dance. Her memoir records with light-hearted humor and wisdom not only the difficulties she faced - the resistance of her parents, the sacrifices of her training - but also the frontier atmosphere of early Hollywood, as well as New York and London during the Depression. "This is the story of an American dancer," writes Agnes de Mille, "a spoiled egocentric wealthy girl, who learned with difficulty to become a worker, to set and meet standards, to brace a Victorian sensibility to contemporary roughhousing, and who, with happy good fortune, participated by the side of great colleagues in a renaissance of the most ancient and magical of all the arts.""--,Provided by publisher.
