in a flowered chiffon, with blue as the
predominating color in the dress. Mrs.
Floyd Firestone looked charming in
a gown of white crepe made on Gre-

stones. Mrs. W. R. Drury seemed to
be enjoying herself chatting with a
number of friends and added a spring-
like touch with her dress of red flow-
ered net. A great many other spring
formals were also noticed on the
dance floor, despite the stormy wea-
ther. All in all this seemed to be
one of the most popular dances of
the series.

Pa rt In Career Of-r Instructor

Miss Bloomer, Director Of
Ruddigore,' To Present
Dance RecitalFriday
Photography as well as dancing
plays a large part in the career of
Miss Ruth Bloomer, Dance Instruc-
tor in the Physical Education De-
oartment for Women. The dance
t ecital tomorrow night and the danc-
ing in Ruddigore are Miss Bloomer's
most oustanding accomplishments
of this year, her first at the University
of Michigan.
Miss Bloomer was graduated from
New York University, where she re-
,eived her B.S. degree in Physical
Education and studied modern dance
under Martha Hill, an instructor al-
so at Bennington College, Vermont,!
and director of the BenningtonI
School of Dance.
Teaches In WestI
Before coming to Michigan, the
new dance instructor taught three
years at the University of Oregon,
where she started the first West'
Coast Dance Symposium. It was
organized as a tentative "five-year
plan" in which representatives from
Universities in California, Washing-
ton, Oregon and other western states
meet once every year to study the
latest developments in dance.
Miss Bloomer's summers for the
past two years have been spent at
the Bennington School of Dance in
Bennington,tVermont. Two years
ago she acted as general assistant
and last summer served on the staff
as official photographer. Since pho-
tography is her hobby, she has col-
lected all the necessary instruments
which have enabled her to make
dance studies in slow motion as well
as color. ,
The slow motion pictures are

mainly analytical studies of various
dance techniques. Among her color
collections are some photographs of
Doris Humphrey and Charles Weid-
man, famous dance artists, in their
"New Dance," which had its premiere
in Bennington last summer. She al-
so has many pictures of Martha Gra-
ham, a leading American dancer,
choreographer, and teacher of mod-
ern dance.
Popular Dance Number
One of her dance numbers, "Quick
Henry, The Flit," which is being pre-
sented here tomorrow night, has al-
ready found public recognition. Af-
ter a recital at the University of
Oregon she was interviewed by an
advertising representative from a
western oil company who asked per-
mission to put her dance in motion
Miss Bloomer holds an office in
the American Physical Education As-
sociation as the Moving Picture
Chairman of the National Dance
Section. In this capacity she makes
a study of motion pictures and keeps
a record of all the available pictures
on the subject of dance. Last year
;he acted on the advisory board of
the National Dance Section.
Her contribution to the American
Physical Association this year was at
the convention of the Mid-West sec-
tion in Grand Rapids, where she
gave a paper on men in modern
dance, illustrated with some dance
techniques by the men in the Play
Production classes.
Miss Bloomer has had entire
charge of the dancing in tomorrow's
recital. She has instructed all the
dance groups, including the Play
Froduction men and women, the
Dance Club, the Freshman and Jun-
ior Major classes and the Advanced
Dance Class.
