Ted Shawn: His Life, Writings, and Dances


By: Paul A. Scolieri

 Ted Shawn: His Life, Writings, and Dances is the first critical biography of the dance legend and Pillow founder, offering an in-depth look into Shawn's pioneering role in the formation of the first American modern dance company and school, the first all-male dance company, and Jacob's Pillow itself. From the book jacket: "What a thrill to see Paul Scolieri's extensive research brought to life in this magnificent overview of Shawn's life and career! The historical context, contemporary perspective, and personal insights make this book both a revelation and an indispensable resource for anyone interested in learning more about the beginnings of dance in America." - Norton Owen, Director of Preservation, Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival
