Daniel Nagrin has been dubbed "the great loner of American dance" by Dance Magazine. His career as a master dancer/choreographer and teacher spans over four decades -- from Broadway, where he was once voted Best Male Dancer, to films to being a solo concert artist, a lecturer, and an artist-in-residence on the university touring circuit. Mr. Nagrin studied with a variety of modern dance teachers, including Helen Tamiris, Hanya Holm, Martha Graham, and Anna Sokolow. He is currently Professor of Dance at Arizona State University in Tempe.
