Jean Erdman Campbell: After immersing herself in hula as a child, Jean Erdman began her professional dance career with one of the most celebrated choreographers of all time, Martha Graham. After starring as the principal dancer in Graham’s illustrious, groundbreaking company, Jean went on to found her own dance companies and became a Tony-Award winning choreographer in her own right. As we’ll likely see on Valentine’s evening, Jean dances her way through life, even as she approaches 100!
