Ted Shawn, originally Edwin Myers Shawn, was one of the first notable male pioneers of American modern dance. Enjoy Ted Shawn’s best quotes below.
“Dance is the only art of which we ourselves are the stuff of which it is made.”
“I believe that dance communicates man’s deepest, highest and most truly spiritual thoughts and emotions far better than words, spoken or written.”
“I wanted to see if the American man in plain brown pants and a bare torso could speak profound things.”
