    Uncompromising innovator, researcher,

    dancer and scholar, mentor and matriarch

    She is a bishop's daughter with a silver-spoon

    childhood and youthful traumas through

    the death of her father, wartime separation

    and teenage poverty. Valerie's meeting, aged

    sixteen, with the extraordinary Hungarian

    Rudolf Laban, guru of expressionist dance,

    set her on a life-long career devoted to

    questioning, championing and developing

    his initial insights into dance as a deeply

    significant art form for human wellbeing.

    Her writing exposes her battles to integrate

    dance practice with dance scholarship in a

    world set up to keep them apart.

    She shares the difficulties of balancing the

    demands of family with professional life

    exacerbated by the catastrophic illness of her

    husband John and her own experience of

    mental breakdown.

    She describes her travels taking dance all

    over the globe and collecting evidence across

    Europe of Laban's leadership of German dance

    in the 1920s and 1930s, work that the Nazi

    regime almost succeeded in annihilating.

    The book traces her support of what is

    now Trinity Laban Conservatoire for Music

    and Dance, from being in its first cohort of

    students in a grubby studio in Manchester to

    being honoured as a Fellow in its Herzog and

    de Meuron award-winning building in South


    Valerie shares her wholehearted commitment

    to whatever was on offer at difference stages of

    her life from performing and choreographing,

    renovating a Victorian garden and running

    clubs for disadvantaged people, writing books

    and directing documentaries, educating

    dancers and dance makers, engaging with

    all manner of people along the way from the

    left-wing theatre director Joan Littlewood to

    the establishment Archbishop of Canterbury

    or the astounding choreographer William

    Forsythe, while nurturing her family and embracing Quakerism.
