Editorial Reviews

Mura Dehn was a Russian-born dancer who came to America in the 1930's, drawn by the magic of Harlem's jazz. Realizing that jazz dance was an extraordinary new art form, she dedicated herself to preserving it on film. In this delightful film, made when she was 82, her reminiscences are interwoven with excerpts from her film The Spirit Moves. Included are memorable scenes of the Lindy Hop and Be Bop dance at the Savoy Ballroom.
