Revolutionary Dancers

Throughout the twentieth century, the art of dance went through significant changes. Although ballet is one of the most traditional forms of dance, exceptional choreographers helped to modernize and expand the definition of classical ballet. Two of these influential choreographers are Martha Graham and Agnes de Mille.

The Martha Graham and Agnes de Mille stamps were designed by Ethel Kessler and were issued at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center Victoria Theatre.
