Bella Lewitzky made important contributions to the advancement of modern dance as an art form through her teaching, performance, and movement explorations. In this article, I relate my experiences dancing in the final days of the Bella Lewitzky Dance Company, examine Lewitzky’s professional relationship with Lester Horton, and discuss aspects of Lewitzky’s technique. I end by describing how Lewitzky’s legacy is extended through my teaching practice and call for renewed examination of her career and contributions to the dance field.
