Dancers of the New Age



We are the dancers of the new age!

The revealers of the glory

that has been shown,

the prophets of the glory

that is to come.


Within the temple of the dance

we have become priests

of the new day,

and perform our mighty

ritual of beauty.


Only obedience to law is liberty,

but the liberty is beauty,

and that law divine.


Hidden from dull ears and

veiled from blinded eyes

is the great rhythm of the universe,

and we are the rhythms of the law

made visible.


We bring you proportion,

which is order,

rhythm, which is power,

and, beauty, which is joy.


Behold the vision of your greater selves,

the images of your dreams,

dancing upon the mountains.


Oh World,

behold and live again.

We have found the secret,

we have found the way,

It is to dance!


-Ruth St. Denis
