Sokolow discusses her training at the Neighborhood Playhouse

"From the Settlement House, the woman in charge of it thought that I should have more advanced training. She sent me to the Neighborhood Playhouse. And then into that atmosphere came Martha Graham and Louis Horst to teach us modern dance and choreography. And that was a great turning point. Especially studying with Louis Horst, studying choreography."
