(b E. Palestine, Ohio, c.1901; d New York, 19 Nov. 1995)

US dance educator and administrator. She studied at the Kellog School of Physical Education, Michigan, and later studied various techniques including Graham's, with whose company she performed (1929–31). Her commitment was to teaching rather than performance, however, and during her long career she taught at many institutions including the universities of Oregon and Columbia, Bennington College, and the Juilliard School where she was director of the dance department (1951–85). She also founded summer programmes at Bennington, Mills College, University of California, and Connecticut College. Her leadership in the field of education had a profound influence on the development of US dance, as did her contribution to many advisory panels. When she retired from the Juilliard she was named artistic director emerita.
