Modern Dance Forms In Relation to the Other Modern Arts Louis Horst and Carroll Russell Preface by Janet Mansfield Soares Foreword by Martha Graham By relating the development of modern dance to movements in painting, architecture, drama, and music, Horst prompts students to develop a keen eye for emerging trends in the arts as a continual resource for dance. Louis Horst (1884-1964) played a central role in the growth of modern dance, as accompanist, composer, teacher, and close associate of Martha Graham. Modern Dance Forms accurately describes the course of study that educated thousands of professional dancers and actors under Horst’s strict tutelage.
