Significant of the increasing inter-
eL in the modern dance, was the
eothusiastic reception of the Ben-
flin ion School of Dance, Bennington,
Vt. One hundred and three students
xgister d for the six weeks' course
while 50 aspirants were turned away.
Such artists as Doris Humphreys
and Charles Weidman, performers in
last year's Dramatic Festival, and
Martha Graham, America's outstand-
ing dancer, instructed and gave recit-
al. Hanya Holm' represented the
Wigwam School. John Martin, Dance
Ciiic of the New York Times, spent
the summer at Bennington so as to
keep the public informed on the pro-
gress of the venture.
Among the stu tlnts were Miss
Emily White, instructor of rhythms
classes and director of Dance Club,
and Collin Wilsey, '35. One of Miss
Wilsey's compositions was of such
merit that it received recognition
from Martha Graham.
Bennington College sponsored this
course of modern dance as part of
their progressive program. The offi-
cers of the Administration believe
that the arts should be granted equal
standing with all the other College
The Bennington School of Dance
brought together from 27 states pe?-
pl with varying interests and talenfts.
Two-thirds of the dancers were
teachers and one-third college stu-
dents. Ages ranged from 15 to 60,
the average age being 28.
Such a wide representation made
possible the carrying out of the de-
clared purpose of the school: "The
modern dance in common with the
other arts of this period is a diversi-
fled rather than a singyle style. At
the same time it possesses certain
identifying characteristics which are
common to all significant forms. The
most advantageous plan of study is
one which reflects the diversification
and by affording comparisons, aims
to reveal the essentials of modernism
in the dance."
This project was so successful that
plans are being made several years
ahead in the hope of developing it
in the manner of the
