Joanna borrowed some materials from my "archive" and included a bio of my mother, Mimi Kagan, who spent a lot of her dance career in the Bay Area. The book has a fascinating collection of dance histories, ephemera and photographs. I have to return it to the library, though! She includes performers who visited the Bay Area and had a lot of influence on the dance movement here (like Martha Graham, etc.).
