Happy Birthday Martha

Martha Graham was born today in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in 1894.

She transformed dance with a new language of movement, and has been called the greatest dancer of the 20th Century, and possibly ever.

Google has a lovely tribute doodle - an animation by Ryan Woodward - for how else can you honor her except with motion?
