Google paid tribute to US dance pioneer Martha Graham on Wednesday by transforming the celebrated logo on its homepage into a dancing animation.

Instead of the usual colorful logo, the Internet search giant's homepage features an animated dancer who spells out the word "" in a series of elegant dance moves made famous by Graham.

Graham, founder of the Martha Graham Dance Company, was born on May 11, 1894 and died on April 1, 1991.

The Mountain View, California-based Google frequently changes the "" on its famously spartan homepage to mark anniversaries or significant events or pay tribute to artists, scientists, statesmen and others.
