The only time she felt free was when she was dancing. Then, one day, in the middle of Death Valley, it appeared to her like a dream. A beautiful theater that no one wanted . . .
To Dance on Sands is the long awaited autobiography of Marta Becket, artist, dancer, performer. From her childhood in bohemian New York of the 1920s and 30s to her career as a successful painter, dancer, and chorus performer on Broadway and television, Becket tells, in quirky, honest prose, the story of the many ups and downs she faced living a life in the arts and of her eventual artistic rebirth as the owner, choreographer, and star performer for almost 40 years at the Amargosa Opera House in Death Valley Junction, California.
To Dance on Sands is the story of a fiercely independent woman driven by her creative muses to live life very much on her own terms. From the glitz of New York to performing before a handpainted audience in a remote ghost town, Marta Becket’s tale will appeal to dance and theater enthusiasts or to anyone interested in following their muse-no matter where it takes them.
