Performer at 60 Seconds 2010 and quote from Martha Graham, (c) Carole Edrich 2010-15

I took this photograph years ago at an East London Dance show called 60×60 in which 60 different dancers were given 60 seconds to perform to music that lasted for the same amount of time. It is one of the few shots I’ve taken where I’ve been unable to identify the dancer, so if you know her please get in touch.

If you like this quote and enjoy my blog please consider supporting me by buying my recent book ‘The Joy of Dance’. It includes many other inspirational quotes about and by dancers along with fascinating facts and captivating stories about as many different types of dances, dancers, personalities and cultures as I could cram in. It contains no photos but some lovely illustrations.

I don’t get royalties for this book, so while buying it any other way will justify the publishers’ decision to commission me, so if you’d like some of your money to go to me too please use the link below.
