Ballet for Martha: Making Appalachian Spring - Jan Greenberg, Sandra Jordan, Brian Floca

The famous American ballet Appalachian Spring was dancer Martha Graham’s dream. On October 30, 1944, her dream came alive on stage as a result of her collaboration with composer Aaron Copland and sculptor and set designer Isamu Noguchi. While composing the music, Copland wrote BALLET FOR MARTHA (Flash Point, $17.99) at the top of the score. Authors Jan Greenberg and Sandra Jordan tell the story that accompanies Brian Floca’s line and watercolor illustrations, giving the reader a front row seat to the unusual dances, set design, and music that made this creation an American classic. Ages 7-10. ESL
