Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Hilde Boman-Behram (n e Sofer) (1905-2001), better known by her stage name Hilde Holger, was an Austro-Hungarian-born British expressionist dancer, choreographer, teacher, and educator, who was trained by Gertrud Bodenwieser in Vienna. She was highly acclaimed, well known throughout Vienna's flourishing artistic circles during the 1920s and 1930s. At an early age, while still touring, she had developed a dedication towards teaching and in 1926 had opened the successful New School of Movement Arts in Palais Ratibor, right in the heart of Vienna. Upon the Nazi annexation of Austria in 1938, Holger was forbidden to perform or work. In 1939 with the help of a friend, Charles Petrach, she was able to escape the country within a day's notice.show more
