Performers: 1960-1969

While Ted Shawn and Ruth St. Denis were celebrating their 50th anniversary and giving their final performances, artists such as Pina Bausch and the Paul Taylor Dance Company appeared for the first time.  Most artists were part of mixed programs, usually combining ballet stars with a lesser-known modern company and an international soloist.
