founder of Soul City and H.M.' Micheaux, a former U.S.
"For people who are interested in law school, it will be an ex

Jack Arnold's piece "Six on Bach,"
choreographed to music by Bach,
utilized the technical ability of the dan
cers to bring about some very beautiful
combinations of rapid, pulsating move
ment and slower elegant movement.
This coupling was further enhanced by
the interesting combination of dancers
themselves. Variations in body types
and performing styles served to increase
the visual beauty of the piece.

Marion Calloway gave a bright perfor
