The men who danced( Visual )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Presents the story of the first all-male dance company in the United States, known as Ted Shawn's Men Dancers. Includes historic footage of the company performing in the 1930s, capturing the beauty and rigor of Shawn's choreography. Additionally, tells the story of the founding of Jacob's Pillow, an abandoned farm that Shawn purchased to house his new dance company. The Pillow is now one of the premier annual dance festivals and summer dance schools in the country. This film highlights interviews with eight of the original Shawn dancers at a 50-year reunion at The Pillow in 1982, as well as rare archival dance films and contemporary footage of these historic dances revived at the festival. American male dancing has come a long way since the days of Ted Shawn, often called the father of modern dance. This film captures the early struggle -- the evolution and legacy of a concept that is still evolving today. Without Shawn, the American male dancer would not have achieved his fullest sense of maturity and independence. This award-winning film was directed by Ron Honsa and has aired on PBS."--Container
