Renée E. D’Aoust

Body of a Dancer

Etruscan Press

Told through interlocking essays, Renée E. D’Aoust’s memoir explores the brutal and passionate world of modern dance in New York City. As a student of Martha Graham Dance, the author tells of muscle and desire, day jobs and defeat. Dance history is interwoven with the stories of contemporary dancers as she explores the ties that bind her. D’Aoust’s essays were listed as notable essays in the Best American Essays collections of 2006, 2007, and 2009.
