Fraternity News This Week


Martha Graham a leading interpreter of the modern dance, and
her company of 12 will perform at 8:30 p.m. Monday night in the
Pattengill Auditorium of Ann Arbor High School. The Recital is being
sponsored by the department of Physical Education for women. The
music is written by the composers who have seen the dance and fit
the music to the rhythmic pattern and moods of the various move-
ments. The costumes also were designed on this same principle.
Martha Graham Style Of Dance
Desit ned To A.rouse Emtotionsi

Parental Objections Stood
In Way Of Stage Career;
Evolved Own Technique
Martha Graham, who will appear
here Monday with her dance group,.
started her career at the age of two
when she slipped out of the pew dur-
ing a church service and danced sol-
emnly down the aisle to the strains of
the offertory music.
However due to parental objections
Miss Graham was forced to confine
1 her efforts to the kitchen until she
was 16. Then after seeing Ruth St.
Dennis dance she dared defy her
father and went to Los Angeles to
study for six weeks with Miss St.
Member Of Denishawn School
In 1919 Miss Graham became a
member of the Denishawn School
where she danced and taught. She
then went to the Eastman School of
Music in Rochester, N.Y. where she
taught for some time. However at
this time she broke away from the
Denishawn company and began to
evolve her own technique.
The aim of Miss Graham's dance is
not so much to entertain the spectator
as to move him emotionally and lead;
him to realize his own potentialities.
She believes that the difference be-
tween the artist and the non-artist
is in a greater capacity for feeling
and that the artist can objectify and
make apparent the feelings everyonel

staging are directed by the dancer

and they are of great importance in, spectively. Miss Deutsch wore a

Practices Long Hours _----

quietly as she has little time for so-
cial engagements because of the long
hours she spends performing, prac-
ticing and teaching. However she
likes the theatre and motion pictures.
And on the screen she particularly
admires Fred Astaire.
This will be Miss Graham's second
appearance in Ann Arbor. She took
part in "Electra" with Blanche Yurka
in one of the recent Dramatic Sea-

to 150 couples, will feature a Mich-
igan "swing" led by W. W. Spangle.
