Ted Shawn's Cosmic Dance of Siva

The January/February/March, 2009 issue of Hinduism Today will bring the fascinating story of Ruth St. Denis, the revolutionary modern dancer who introduced to the West India-inspired choreographies. We thought you would like to see this small excerpt of a performance by her husband, Ted Shawn, entitled "The Cosmic Dance of Shiva." Copyrighted to the documentary "Denishawn" by the New Jersey Center Dance Collective, here under fair use as a brief portion of the work.
