"Havelock Ellis said, 'Dancing and
architecture are the two fundamental
arts, all others are based upon them.'
Because of the conditions of the ,
growth of civilization, the dance has
fallen far behind the other arts. Five
hundred years from now I believe that
dancing will have reached the stage
of advancement that music has today.{
It has- only been in the past twenty
years that any serious dancing has
been done in America.
America is yet in its infancy any-,
way. It bases too much on mechanical,
tangible things. It ignores the emo-
tional and the spiritual. Picture if you
can, a group of children-only these
children are 40 and 50 years old-
playing with mechanical toys, soon
tiring of one and turning toward an-I
other. I believe in time America will
outgrow this and turn toward thej
more permanent arts of life. The be-
ginning of dancing in America is a
turning toward this goal.
