Dance occupied a back seat in the theatre of the performing arts in the latter part of the nineteenth century, but it began to come to prominence with the craze for the cakewalk starting in 1896. Loie Fuller’s Serpentine Dance of twirling scarves and lights entranced audiences from 1902 and in 1906 Ruth St. Denis presented herself in a full length work Radha. But it was in the second decade of the twentieth century that dance took center stage.  Ruth St. Denis and Ted Shawn established the Denishawn School in 1915 whose dancers explored the modern repertoire for years to follow.

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

In 1954, LIFE sent reporters to the Bahamas to cover the filming of Walt Disney’s first live-action picture, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. The movie would go on to win the Oscar for best special effects. Many of the photos in this gallery never ran in the magazine and have never been seen before now.

See more pictures from this gallery on LIFE.
