"Five, six, seven, eight!" Defines the life of actress, dancer, choreographer, and director Miriam Nelson. Miriam's life reads like a 1930's musical. While still in her twenties, she appeared in six Broadway shows. On the day she moved to Los Angeles, Miriam ran into old friend Billy Daniels from New York who took her to lunch at Paramount. During lunch, Miriam ran into another New York friend, Paramount president Buddy de Sylva, who hired her on the spot for Lady in the Dark starring Ginger Rogers. Miriam has been dancing with the stars ever since! Nelson has tapped and chasséd with countless stars, including Julie Andrews, Ingrid Bergman, Doris Day, Judy Garland, Bette Davis, Bing Crosby, Gene Kelly, John Travolta and Billy Bob Thornton. Miriam was there for the opening day at Disneyland - Walt Disney hired her to choreograph dance numbers around the Park, including the famous Golden Horseshoe Revue. Miriam's career spans both the famous and infamous eras of stage, screen, and television. Encouraged by friends and family to recall her special "behind the scenes" moments, Miriam sorted through memories, scrapbooks and mountains of photographs to enable readers to share the excitement and anticipation, the joy and the sorrow that chronicled her extraordinary life. Fortunately, for those who love to dance and those who love to watch dance, Miriam Nelson remains an exciting part of the professional American dance scene. "You're a darling girl, Miriam, and I love you for all that you did. God bless you always, your dear friend," - Busby Berkley

Poet Sylvia Stern enjoys walking and observing the sky. The sun brightens her mood and makes her smile. But a few clouds and her imagination can work together to see things other people wouldn't see. She loves the stars and imagines jumping between them. All of nature in the sky or on the ground is fascinating to her. In her collection, Dancing with the Moon and the Stars, she shares her observations of the world. There are poems that take the reader on adventures with clouds-one of Stern's favorite topics. From the cold winter sky to the escapades of the fall leaves, her poems capture the magical essence of nature. Come along on an adventure that might have you tasting parts of the sky in one poem or blowing the biggest bubble with bubble gum in another. Dancing with the Moon and the Stars is a poetic journey that considers nature in a different light. A Wish for Wings Sometimes I wish I could be a butterfly and when the time is right to make a change, I could zip myself into my little sleeping bag, have a nice, long rest and when I awoke I would be a gorgeous bug with wings.

Yes, it’s true—Elegant and sophiscated Ballroom dancing is back, and bigger than ever. We’ve seen the magazine covers, talk show appearances, huge ratings and the launching of careers. Well the time has come to answer the question. “What’s behind this worldwide ballroom dance phenomenon?” One of the answers is an American dance legend named Maxine Barrat. Her story is the stuff of dreams—riveting, exotic, passionate—fracturing her back as a child; sneaking into Radio City Music Hall as a teenager; meeting the perfect partner Don Loper and dancing into the arms of Gene Kelly in her first Broadway show. A stint at the glamorous Copacabana catapulted Loper & Barrat to international fame and a role in MGM’s star-studded Thousands Cheer. She reinvented herself as a nightclub singer, donated her time and talents to the war effort and continued her stellar career as a model in the world of fashion. Then a new career in the up-and-coming medium of television. Maxine’s sensational life is interlaced with those of the stars she befriended, from Katharine Hepburn and Ginger Rogers, to those with whom she danced and romanced—from admiring South American caballeros, Hollywood moguls and stars, to an affair with Gone with the Wind matinee idol Clark Gable. Maxine Barrat is a performing arts legend who holds a vital key to the American dance story. She is a real star and it’s time to put Maxine Barrat back on the dance floor.

View: 353

This is a remarkable account of the revolutionary impact of modern dance on European cultural life in the early twentieth century. Edward Ross Dickinson uncovers modern dance's place in the emerging 'mass' culture of the modern metropolis, sufficiently ubiquitous and high-profile to spark media storms, parliamentary debates, and exasperated denunciations even from progressive art critics. He shows how modern dance spoke in multiple registers - as religious and as scientific; as redemptively chaste and scandalously sensual; as elitist and popular. He reveals the connections between modern dance and changing gender relations and family dynamics, imperialism, racism, and cultural exchanges with the wider non-European world, and new conceptions of selfhood. Ultimately the book finds in these complex and often contradictory connections a new way of understanding the power of modernism and modernity and their capacity to revolutionize and transform the modern world in the momentous, creative, violent middle decades of the twentieth century.

One of the greatest all-around running backs in National Football League history, Walter Payton set several league records-including career rushing yards (16,726); most games rushing for 100 or more yards (77); and rushing touchdowns (110)-during his 13-year career with the Chicago Bears. Nicknamed "Sweetness" by his Jackson State University teammates because of his smooth running style and friendly disposition, Payton was a nine-time Pro Bowler and two-time NFL MVP. In 1985, he rushed for more than 1,500 yards to help Chicago capture the most wins in franchise history, with a 15-1 regular season record. In the playoffs, the Bears outscored their opponents 101-10, including a dominating 46-10 victory against the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XX. Tragically, in February 1999, Payton was diagnosed with bile duct cancer. Less than six months later, he was dead, at the age of 45. Payton's legacy endures today through the charitable foundation that he and his wife, Connie, established in 1989. The Walter and Connie Payton Foundation has provided toys and school supplies to thousands of abused, neglected, and underprivileged children in Illinois.

"I am about to share here a story about stars that dance. . . . If the very thought of seeing stars dance piques your curiosity at some deep level of your soul, then pay attention to what follows, for the walk to the Field of Stars, to Santiago de Compostela, is a journey that has the power to change lives forever." -- from the introduction "Pilgrimage" is a strange notion to our modern, practical minds. How many of us have walked to a distant holy place in order to draw nearer to God? Yet the pilgrimage experience is growing these days in various parts of the world. Seeking to take stock of his life, Kevin Codd set out in July 2003 on a pilgrimage that would profoundly change his life. To the Field of Stars tells the fascinating story of his unusual spiritual and physical journey on foot across Spain to Santiago de Compostela, the traditional burial place of the apostle James the Greater. Each brief chapter chronicling Codd's thirty-five-day trek is dedicated to one or two days on the road. Codd shares tales of other pilgrims, his own changes of perspective, and his challenges and triumphs along the way -- all told with a disarming candor. Seen through the eyes of a Catholic priest who honors the religious worldview that originally gave rise to these medieval odysseys, "pilgrimage" comes to life and takes on new meaning in these pages.
