German dancer and choreographer who was a pioneer in modern dancing, bringing the ideas of the first great "modern" dancer, Mary Wigman, to America. She composed, taught and travelled with Martha Graham, Doris Humphrey and Charles Weidman, who came to be some of the most influential modern dancers of their time: "The Big Four". Together, they spread modern dance across the country and opened a school in New York City in 1931; the school was very successful in bringing together American and German dance. She also choreographed such Broadway shows as "Kiss Me, Kate," 1948, "My Fair Lady," 1956 and "Camelot," 1960. She died on 3 November 1992 in New York City, aged 99.
