Eve Gentry looks back over her multifaceted career, which she began under her real name, Henrietta Greenhood. She first studied modern dance with a Laban-trained teacher in California, then moved to New York where she joined Hanya Holm's company, creating roles in works such as Trend and Tragic exodus. She studied dance notation with Irma Otte-Betz, and established the Dance Notation Bureau in New York with Helen Priest Rogers and Ann Hutchinson Guest. Her study of the Pilates method with Joseph Hubertus Pilates eventually led her to evolve her own concept of teaching his corrective and rehabilitative exercises, which she now teaches in her studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
