Google Celebrates Martha Graham


As a lover of dance, I was excited (and, yes, incredibly surprised and perplexed) to see Martha Graham trending on Twitter this morning. Turns out, today would've been Ms. Graham's 117th birthday! And while Google is famous for its themed logos, they took it a step further with a Graham-themed animation highlighting some of her famous technique.

You can view the animation today at Google.com, or watch the video below (with soundtrack!)...

Major kudos to animator Ryan Woodward!

And, to continue the celebration here on Please Welcome Your Judges, here is one of my favorite Martha Graham quotes:
We learn by practice. Whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or to learn to live by practicing living, the principles are the same. One becomes in some area an athlete of God.
Happy 117th, Martha!
