sixth number, although founded on
Spanish themes, has been arranged
by their own musical director, Mr.
Louis Horst. The new scores which
the company will use in their visualiz-
ataons are even more musical than the
ones used last year, and are expected
to contribute the necessary musical
background for a successful year.
Local Color Added
At the close of last year's concert
season Ted Shawn left immediately
for Europe where he searched foriart-
istic novelties and touring through
Spain has succeeded in obtaining
many shawls, costumed oriental jew-
elry, and musical instruments, 'which
it is hoped will add local colorof the
coming season's program. While Ted
Shawn, lenhusband, has been search-.
ing foreign colorings,, Miss Dents has
been working strenuously at thd New
York Denishawn headquarters, work-
ing out with scenic experts her ideas
for new settings, designing, and sup-
ervising the execution of costumes and
properties, and in training the mem-
bers of, her company in the new dan-
es. After six months of study and re-
search, and another six months of
putting the'results of their study into
practice, the Denishawn dancers will
endeavor this year to win more praise
as the foremost exponent of their art
in America.
Cadman, the American composer
and arranger of Indian melodies, has
wrtten the score for Mr. Shawn's
""Feather of the Dawn", which he
founded on a Hopi Indian Legend.
This dance number will be one of the
features of the program. After hav-
ing visualized most of the famous for-
eign classic composers, Miss St. Denis
has selected this season the Sonata
klra gia., March -Wind, and 1iIgaudon
by the American composer, MacDow-
ell. These intrepretations will form
the opening number of the program,
Tihedmes Selected from Nature
One of themost interesting features
of last season's program of the Deni-
shawn company was the. Spanish
Suite. This year's program will con-
gain an entirely new Spanish number
entitled "Cuadro Flamencoc", which
in addition to displaying the art of
l!iss St. -Denis and Mr. Shawh will
give them an opportunity to use sev-
eral elaborate Spanish shawls which
Mr. Shawn bought for that purpose
Otbmi Spain last summer. The music
themes which lie also selected from
1 native melodies have been arranged
by Mr. Louis lorst. The action of the
dance takes place on the day of the
great bull fight, and the scene is laid
in a concert cafe, hall in Seville.
Many noteworthy critics are firm
in their belief that the penishawn
artists have elevated dancing to its
proper place as one of the funda-
mental fine arts. Mr. Shawn has been
invited to lecture at the .University
of Minnesota, the University of Texas,

Three Arts Club, all the high schools
in St. Paul, Omaha, and other leading
