Anna Sokolow Teaching Dance in Tokyo, Japan, 1966

Anna Sokolow Teaching Dance in Tokyo, Japan, 1966
In 1966, Anna Sokolow spent several weeks teaching in Tokyo. Her Japanese students were often baffled by her vehemence and power as a teacher. "Work like wild animals, not like little students!... I'm not here to be polite. I'm here to tell the truth," she would yell at them. By the end of the course, the students had grown to appreciate their difficult taskmaster.
