Pioneer of American modern dance. Like Choreographer-Dancers Martha Graham and Doris Humphrey, Weidman studied at the famed Denishawn School in Los Angeles, leaving to found his own company with Humphrey in 1929. Seeking to choreograph the American scene, Weidman created such works as "Lynch Town," a depiction of mob violence, and "Fables For our Time," based on a series of James Thurber's stories. A dedicated teacher, he numbered among his pupils Jose Limon and choreographer Bob Fosse (Cabaret, Chicago).
