Dance Club, which will give its an-
nual dance recital Saturday after-
noon and night, May 4, in the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre, is primarily
interested in the dance as a contem-
porary art form.
Just as music and painting created,
out of the life of today differ radi-
cally from those arts as expressed
in past centuries, so dance that is a
vital expression of contemporary civ-
ilization takes a different form than
it did at the time of Louis XIV or
at the end of the nineteenth century
when the ballet reigned.'
Whereas the ballet was restricted to,
coquetish, cffeminite gesture, move-,
ment today is vigorous and direct.
The modern dance (the term is tran-
sitory) is a direct medium of expres-
sion rather than a link in a series
of tableau or a presentation of a nar-
It is an independent art form in
that it is a complete expression in
itself and is not, for instance, "inter-
pretive" of music. Emphasis is onI
structure, rhythm and design in
Having begun a revolution, the
modern dance is now establishing a,
discipline, though the specific styles
differ, and developing a body of men
and women for significant expression.
The outstanding dancers of Amer-
ica are in all probability Martha Gra-
ham, awarded the Guggenheim Fel-
lowship in 1932, with her group of
women; and Doris Humphrey and
Charles Weidman with a large group
of men and women.
Undergraduate Tea
To Be Given Friday
The monthly open tea for under-
graduate women will be given from
4 to 6 p.m. Friday in the League ball-
room. Both sorority and non-affil-
iated women are invited to attend.
Al Cowan's orchestra will play for'
Special entertainment will be pro-
vided by the Freshman Trio, Betty
Whitney, Carol Mahon, and Virginia
Hunt, who are to sing at the Mardi
Gras. Marilyn Fingerle, '38, will be
the accompanist.

Mr. Weidman and Miss Humphrey
appeared here last spring in the Dra-
matic Season and performed with
their group in January in the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre. The January
demonstration made the modern
dance more meaningful to Ann Arbor
audiences, for Miss Humphrey ex-
plained and illustrated how these
dances are built up.
This form has replaced tap and
musical comedy dancing in such hits
as "Life Begins at 8:40" and "As
Thousands Cheer." Moreover, it is
enthusiastically received on the con-
cert stage.
Although there is not as yet much
opportunity to study the modern
dance, a step indicating its coming
importance is the establishment of
the Bennington School of Dance,
Bennington, Vt.
