Doris Humphrey (1895 – 1958) was a dancer and choreographer of the early twentieth century. Along with her contemporaries Martha Graham and Katherine Dunham, Humphrey was one of the second generation modern dance pioneers who explored the use of breath and developing techniques still taught today. As many of her works were annotated, Humphrey continues to be taught, studied, and performed to this day.
