Introduces four major choreographers--Martha Graham, Doris Humphrey, Charles Weidman, and Hanya Holt--who revolted against the conventions of ballet to produce American modern dance. Employs film clips and still photographs taken in 1934 to show the dancers and their teachers during the early days at Mount Bennington College. Each choreographer explains his view of the meaning dance should have within the arts. Includes a full production of Doris Humphrey's Passacaglia by the American Dance Theatre at Lincoln Center in 1965.
