Description

Through the research for this paper I found that men have a very strong presence in the world of modern dance. They are much more than just partnering bodies. They are very influential artists that have impacted the society of art in a big way. Through my comparisons of Ted Shawn, George Balanchine, and Bill T. Jones it was quite evident that while all men were undoubtedly different, all influenced American modern dance. Choreographers now want men who are individual artists as dancers and not just partnering bodies. Men’s presence in the modern dance world is very important and growing faster than ever.
