The program for Dance club's an-
nual recital, which will be given May
4 in the Lydia Mendelssohn Theater,
was announced yesterday by Miss
Emily White, of the physical educa-
tion department, faculty director of
Dance club.
The opening dance will be the
"Dance of Greeting," with music by
Respighi. This dance was composed
by Collin Wilsey, '36, and according
to Miss White, it represents the most
perfect technique in composition of
any of the dances which will be pre-
sented. Both men and women will
take part in this number.
The second number will be a series
of Studies, consisting of a study by
Doris Humphreys, Men's Studies,
Balance Study, and Dynamics and
Focus. A Dance by Prokofieff will be
the third feature, and will be follow-
ed by a dance by Julia- Wilson, '36, to
the music of Ravel's "Habanera."
Two spirituals, "Go Down Moses,"
and "Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory"
will form the fifth group, and after
this three dance groups composed
by Miss Wilson, to the music of Bar-
tok. will be presented. The numbers
in this group are the "Peasant
Dance," "Pavonne" and "Dance In
The next group will prove of spe-
cial interest to students, Miss White
said, since they portray campus
scenes. It is divided into three parts.
In the first, a classroom scene is por-
trayed with Truman Smith, '35, as
the professor. The second is en-
titled "Crossing the Diagonal," and
the third will be a scene from a foot-
ball game.
Part II of the program will open
with a "Religious Cycle," portraying
Sprimitive, traditional, and modern
ideas of religion. This was originally
presented in the Unitarian church.
The first group will be done to the
music of Cyril Scott, the second to
Cerbeau's music, and the third to a
composition by Raymond Kondrato-
wicz, '35SM, who will be the accom-
panist for the recital.
Oren Parker, assistant in Play Pro-
duction, and Althea Lisle, '36, will
present the next number, "Le Chat
Qui S'Amuse," and will be followed
by "Pavanne" by Faure.
A romantic dance, "Clair de Lune"
will be the next feature, and following
this, "The Way of the Cross," com-
posed by Miss Wilsey, will be pre-
