Biographical/Historical Note

At the turn of the 20th Century, Ruth St. Denis (January 20, 1879 - July 21, 1968) was a popular vaudeville performer and veteran of several David Belasco theatrical productions. In 1910, in need of a male dance partner for her act, St. Denis auditioned an admiring Ted Shawn (October 21, 1891 - January 9, 1972) and modern dance history was positioned to be made. The couple married in 1914 and, in 1915, founded Denishawn, a dance school and performing company in Los Angeles. In its day, Denishawn was synonymous with dance in America; Martha Graham, Doris Humphrey, Charles Weidman and Jose Limon were just a few of the dancers who began their careers with Ruth St. Denis and Ted Shawn. During the twenties, the two dancers and the Denishawn company appeared in the famed Ziegfeld Follies, both on Broadway and on national tours. From August 1925 to November 1926, the company embarked on a triumphant tour of Asia.

Ted Shawn and Ruth St. Denis separated in 1931 and the official Denishawn company disbanded. St. Denis pursued spiritual and Asian influences in her performances and teaching, while Shawn, anxious to build up the role of the male dancer and to remove some of the stereotypical stigma attached to men in dance, founded the all-male "Ted Shawn and His Men Dancers" troupe ("Dance with a New Look"), performing works based on the classics and sports events (including "Olympiad" - a program executed in both normal and slow motion). Shawn's dancers were often recruited from high school or college athletic teams, and the company was a great success, appearing on stages from 1933 to 1940.

After pursuing separate careers for some ten years, Shawn and St. Denis were reunited, with much hoopla, in 1941 at the Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival in Lee, Massachusetts, summer home of "Ted Shawn and His Men Dancers." The couple performed several works together, and "Miss Ruth," as she was widely known in the dance world, revived her 1906 signature piece, "Radha."

For the remainder of his career, Ted Shawn ("America's Greatest Contemporary Dancer"), continued to manage the summer dance festivals and The University of the Dance at Jacob's Pillow and travelled to the Jacob's Pillow winter home in Eustis, Florida, where he built a full-fledged dance studio. From 1931 to 1948, Shawn often danced, in concert, with his professional and domestic partner, Barton Mumaw (most famous for his Broadway role in "Annie Get Your Gun"). John Christian (Executive Director of the Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival) was also Ted Shawn's domestic and business partner in later years. "Miss Ruth" ("The First Lady of the Dance") spent the last decade of her life promoting the restoration of dance in its original position as a vital ingedient in religious ritual.

Although the couple was separated, they never divorced and were business associates promoting the glory of the dance, without restrictions, through education and the lasting legacy of the Jacob's Pilow Dance Festival.

Promotional material for the Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival in Lee Massachusetts is also included, beginning with the founding of the property as a dance mecca by Ted Shawn in 1933 through the present day. Miscellaneous ephemera pertaining to the professional and private lives of Ted Shawn's professional/domestic partners Barton Mumaw and John Christian has also been included in this collection.

Acquisition Information

Acquired through purchase and donations beginning in the mid 1970s. Most of the ephemera came from Ted Shawn's Eustis (Florida) dance studio (Jacob's Pillow winter home).

Processing Notes

The collection was processed in 2012 by Elisabeth "Betty" Keeman, a University of Florida Theatre and Dance student who volunteered under the supervision of Jim Liversidge.

Denishawn denotes the dance performance and business partnership of Ruth St.Denis and Ted Shawn from 1915 to 1930. However, the entire collection has been titled THE DENISHAWN DANCE COLLECTION since both subjects, appreciating their legacy, worked as business associates, for the remainder of their lives, and often interacted as a married couple and a legendary dance team promoting dance through education and performance.

According to a hand-printed description (author unknown) found in the collection: "In the winter of 1939-40, Ted Shawn, while touring by automobile to dance in some 125 cities with his company of men dancers, found himself often dreaming of doing sculpture in wood. The idea seemed to come of its own accord and repeatedly - although he had never attempted modeling in clay or drawing or painting. On arriving at his Florida studio, knowing nothing of proper tools or techniques, he began work on a well-cured limb of orange wood which had been given to him, and produced his first torso...His next piece, in cherry, was based on a well-known poster of Shawn in dancing pose, by Major Felten. Since then he has experimented with different types of sculptural problems , in various kinds of wood, and has come to find more relaxation in the carving of wood than in any other form of recreation. Being officially untutored, he modestly clings to his amateur standing, though his work is evidence that a feeling for rhythm and a knowledge of the body acquired through a dancing career may be clearly expressed in a medium more permanent than the dance."

123 Barton Mumaw - Biographical Ephemera. Miscellaneous biographical information and ephemera pertaining to the private life and professional career of Barton Mumaw (dancer, choreographer, actor, educator and domestic partner of Ted Shawn - 1931-47) including miscellaneous newspaper and magazine clippings, a (2-page) handwritten (1943) letter from Maisie Mumaw (mother of Barton Mumaw) to Irma Gordon (?) discussing Barton Mumaw as an enlisted entertainer during the war, an undated Barton Mumaw "Holiday Greetings" card, etc. According to Barton Mumaw's New York Times Obituary by Jack Anderson (June 21, 2001): "Born in Hazelton, Pa., on Aug. 20, 1912, and reared in Florida, Mr. Mumaw studied dance with local teachers as a boy. In 1930 he attended a program by Denishawn, the dance company directed by Shawn and his wife, Ruth St. Denis, which was known for its choreographic eclecticism and theatrical vividness. Mr. Mumaw was so overwhelmed by the performance that he went to New York to study at the Denishawn school. After he joined the company in 1931, he also worked as Shawn's chauffeur and dresser. He was a member of Shawn's all-male troupe, Ted Shawn and His Men Dancers, from its inception in 1933 until it disbanded in 1940. That company's athletic style did much to make dancing seem like a respectable profession for men. Shawn remained the greatest influence on Mr. Mumaw. In 'Barton Mumaw, Dancer: From Denishawn to Jacob's Pillow and Beyond,' the autobiography he wrote with Jane Sherman (Dance Horizons, 1986), he declared that 'in essence, my life began in 1927, when I took my first dancing lesson in Eustis, Fla., and ended in 1972, when Ted Shawn died there.' In that memoir Mr. Mumaw also revealed that he had been Shawn's lover for many years and recorded how their involvement affected every aspect of their professional lives. So that no one could accuse dance of being morally questionable, the two took pains to conceal the true nature of their relationship.
