“With Martha, dance is life for her and life is dance, and life, to Martha, is a struggle. You either take up the struggle and overtly say, yes, I’m going to struggle… And for Martha, she takes up the struggle and she is determined she is going to win. She is going to be victorious. Martha is going to win over men, women, anyone else who is there. Martha is going to be on top.” – Dan Wagoner on his indefatigable, strong-willed mentor and teacher, Martha Graham.
