Abstract:

The first revealing, in-depth, full-length biography of the most important male figure in American dance: Ted Shawn (1891-1972), dancer, choreographer, teacher (of Martha Graham, Doris Humphrey, Charles Weidman), innovator, partner with his wife Ruth St. Denis in the famed Denishawn Company, founder of Jacob's Pillow. Using exclusive materials (oral, written, photographic), America's most important dance critic explores Shawn's enormous influence on the entire spectrum of the dance. It was Ted Shawn who brought the concept of virility to male dancing in America and made it thereby (especially through his later all-male dance groups) both exciting as theater and respectable as a career.--Book jacket.
