Doris Humphrey
FameRank: 4

"Doris Batcheller Humphrey" was a dancer and choreographer of the early twentieth century. Along with her contemporaries Martha Graham and Katherine Dunham, Humphrey was one of the second generation modern dance pioneers who followed their forerunners – including Isadora Duncan, Ruth St. Denis and Ted Shawn – in exploring the use of breath and developing techniques still taught today. As many of her works were dance notation/annotated, Humphrey continues to be taught, studied and performed.
