A unique record of the work of the Denishawn Dance Company. A member of Denishawn from 1925–1928, Jane Sherman gives us a firsthand look at the many works of art the company produced. This gathering of memory, notes, files, pictures, etc. is like none other. It was the first and only record of some of the dances that Denishawn performed. Records of important figures of modern dance exist in these pages, making this a vital piece of dance history.
