A Denishawn Image Gallery

lulu Louise Brooks appeared with the Denishawn Dance Company in the early 1920's. That group - one of the first modern dance companies in United States, was founded by Ruth St. Denis and Ted Shawn. It's early members included Martha Graham, Charles Weidman, Doris Humphrey and other important figures in the history of modern American dance.
