Biography

Ruth St. Denis (1879-1968) was a modern dance pioneer who combined spirituality and dance. Throughout her career, St. Denis’s dances were greatly influenced by eastern culture and religion. In the later years of her career, Christian themes were also explored and depicted in her works. Born Ruth Dennis in New Jersey, she later added “St.” as part of her stage name. St. Denis’s training began as a child, with the practice of physical exercises developed by François Delsarte. This greatly influenced her future style of dance. As a teenager, she appeared in Broadway musicals and was a protégé of David Belasco. Inspired by a poster advertising Egyptian Deities Cigarettes with an image of the Egyptian goddess Iris, St. Denis began choreographing dances that expressed the goddess’s mysticism. The first dance piece that brought her into the circuit of higher art was Radha, which she first performed in 1906. This dance portrayed the story of Krishna and his love for a mortal maid. St. Denis’s intention was to create a work that would serve as a spiritual expression of eastern cultural themes.
In 1914, St. Denis married her dance partner, Ted Shawn. The following year, they founded the Denishawn School of Dance in Los Angeles, California, one of the first schools devoted to “aesthetic dancing.” In 1920, the school moved to New York City. Aesthetic dancing involved spiritual, natural movements. Some of Denishawn’s illustrious pupils were Martha Graham, Doris Humphrey, Charles Weidman, and Louise Brooks, the future film star. The Denishawn dancers toured Asia for fifteen months in 1925, performing dances inspired by Asian and Egyptian cultures.
In 1927, St. Denis founded the Society of Spiritual Arts, focusing on the religious aspects of dance. In 1931, St. Denis and Shawn separated maritally, but did not legally divorce. Though they dissolved Denishawn, St. Denis remained close to Shawn throughout her career. In 1934, St. Denis founded the Church of Divine Dance at her studio in Los Angeles, which, like the Society of Spiritual Arts, established dance as a means of worship. Here, she led dance masses and rituals. In 1938, she founded the first college dance program in an American university at Adelphi University in New York State.
St. Denis died of a heart attack in Hollywood, California in 1968. As a pivotal figure of modern dance, she left behind an esteemed legacy and several dance companies have honored her by performing her pieces. She was inducted into the National Museum of Dance’s Mr. & Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney Hall of Fame in 1987, and was among the first to be distinguished by the Dance Heritage Coalition in its America’s Irreplaceable Dance Treasures http://www.danceheritage.org/treasures.html.
