Dance Is Like Thought: Helen Keller Visits Martha Graham's Studio

Today, on the 122nd anniversary of the birth of legendary choreographer Martha Graham (b. May 11, 1894), we are sharing a beautiful encounter between the pioneer of modern dance and Helen Keller, as recounted by Maria Popova on her Brain Pickings site. In her piece, Maria includes a video of Helen's visit to Martha's dance studio of which she says, "to watch this is to witness a true triumph of the human spirit."

“Oh, how wonderful! How like the mind it is!” A remarkable encounter at the pinnacle of the human spirit.
