I have changed the header photo (the one that appears on the top of the page above the blog’s title). This particular picture was borrowed from the New York Public Library’s Flickr stream of Early Modern Dance: The Denishawn Collection, a fantastic collection of photos of Ted Shawn and Ruth St Denis’ Denishawn Dance Company.

The header is a detail of the full photo seen here in this post. It depicts pupils of the Denishawn School posing for publicity photos. I think it is a delightfully fanciful set-up. The pupils look as if they’ve just danced their way out of the pages of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
