On Thursday, May 16, the modern
dance group held an open class
period during the assembly hour.
It was not a formal demonstration
but simply a jtcrformance of the
regular class exercises to give every- •
ono an insight to what the modem
dancing group is doing. It was given
with an eye to creating a greater
interest in modern dancing through
out the Hfhool and showing its place
in the college curriculum.
The demonstration included illu
strations of the sustained and per
cussive movements in dancing, the
technique of side and back falls,
and examples of axial movements
such as swings and locomotor move
ments as in leaping and running.
The most impressive part of the
program was the performance of
the original themes composed by
the students. One of the classes
gave a suite of a year at Salem.
This had four parts. The first typi
fied registration, tho second, ex-
iminations, the third, the spirit of
vacation, and the fourth, a college
dance. A group from another class
gave a demonstration showing how
a theme is developed. The first part
usi'd locomotor movement, the
second was axial movement, and
the third was a combination of
these two with a jnzz variation.
This demonstration, under tho able
direction of Mrs. Elsie i:ar]o Law
son, showed that this new j>art of
the college eurriculuni is indeed a
vital one, since it not only furnishes
phjrsical activity but provides a
creative butlet which is the real
value of such a course.
It is hoped that in tho future
the modern dancing class can do
some work in cooperation with the
other arts classes such a.s music or
dramatics, as has boen done in
schools which have more advanced
classes in dancing.
