Summary note
Modern dancer Erick Hawkins feels that his dance aesthetics have been influenced by Indian tribes living close to his hometown, Trinidad, Colorado. He did not discover dance until he was in college, where he read works by Isadora Duncan; studied dance in Salzburg, Austria; then came to New York to attend the School of American Ballet; danced with and choreographed for Ballet Caravan; eventually found ballet movements too restrictive, and turned to modern dance. After dancing with the Martha Graham Company for 12 years, he broke away and developed his own dance style, integrating Eastern concepts of body movement, such as those found in the martial art aikido into his own dance vocabulary.
Originally broadcast as a program from the public access cable television series Dance on: with Billie Mahoney.
