Choreographer Bob Fosse once said, “The time to sing is when your emotional level is too high to just speak anymore, and the time to dance is when your emotions are just too strong to only sing about how you feel.”  The artists featured in the Innovative Choreographers stamps were able to express the strong emotions of many through their novel dance styles.

 

At the start of the 20th century dancers performed classical ballet, which had well-defined positions and movements.  Groundbreaking changes began when Isadora Duncan introduced natural movements, loose-fitting tunics, and bare feet into her dances.  Duncan’s dances were inspired by classic Greek artwork.

 

José Limón looked to classic literature and religion for themes for his dances.  His powerful dancers elevated males to a more significant role.

 

Choreographer and anthropologist Katherine Dunham researched Caribbean religious rituals and developed a style of performance that celebrated the African roots of Black Americans.

  • 1847 5¢ Benjamin Franklin, red-brown, thin bluish wove paper, imperforate U.S. #1 - First U.S. Postage Stamp

    On July 1, 1847, the first US postage stamps went on sale.  The 5¢ issue of 1847 (US #1) features a portrait of Benjamin Franklin, the man responsible for organizing America's postal service back in the 1700s.  Postal clerks used scissors to cut the stamps from sheets, as perforations weren't in use yet.  Today, US #1 is a valued piece of American postal history and a lucky find in any condition.
