|About the Book|
In Richmond, no other name is more synonymous with dance than Elinor Fry. Helen Keller, Bill Bojangles Robinson and author Tom Wolfe were just some of the people with whom Fry connected in five decades of dance. From 1920 to 1970, Fry was involved, often accompanied by her beloved students, in nearly every major public event in the River City. Performing in an array of venues and photographed twice by National Geographic, Fry was a blend of creativity and business savvy and a wonderful role model for thousands of children who learned dance in her studio. Join author and historian Paul Herbert as he celebrates Elinor Frys spirit and exceptional achievements in the world of dance in Richmond.
