THE MEN WHO DANCED presents the story of the first all-male dance company established in the U.S. Shawn wanted to prove to the world that male dancers could be more than just props for female dancers. In 1982, eight of these men came together for a reunion at Jacob’s Pillow. This film highlights interviews with these original Shawn dancers at a 50-year reunion at Jacob’s Pillow, as well as rare archival footage of dances Shawn made for the company.
