Dancer in the Light - by Frank Woods

Dancer in the Light is the biography of Gerda ‘Pytt’ Geddes (1917-2006) who was sung lullabies by the Queen of Norway, trained as a dancer and a psychoanalyst, worked with the Norwegian Resistance, outwitted a Gestapo trap, survived a Chinese People’s Liberation Army invasion, and was held hostage for two years in Shanghai.

Then, in Hong Kong, she persuaded a Chinese tai chi master to do the unthinkable and teach a western woman.

She went on to become the first European to bring tai chi to Britain where her teaching influenced the lives of thousands of people and had an impact on the development of contemporary dance.
