Summary:
"A kind of dancing that looks quaint to us now used to be the newest and freshest dancing in the world.  It was called aesthetic or interpretive (or free-form or barefoot or 'figure') dance; it emerged from the nineteenth-century romantic revival of the antique and it inaugurated a modern, twentieth-century way to see motion...
Where She Danced is the story of two generations of American dancers: how they were educated, what gave them the courage, the insight, the foolhadiness to say they had found a new art form, and what gave them the drive to insist on its ultimate seriousness." -- from the Preface of the book
