Staff Reviews


Twyla Tharp was born a Quaker, living in a community of Friends where families help each other. In her life as a dance choreographer, she continued to work closely with individuals and groups to create dances, working together professionally with dancers, assistants, audiences, and other choreographers. The story of her collaboration with Jerome Robbins stands out as particularly inspiring as their friendship survived the collaboration! In her book, she also tells stories of her work with Mikhail Baryshnikov, Elvis Costello, Billy Joel and Bob Dylan. Her main motivator has always remained her sense of quality. Twyla Tharp is truly an original thinker who believes that "In any collaboration, there is not one way. Go with whatever works." - Pinna

— From Spirituality
