Group Rebels Against O
Will Use Native Sc
America has brought numerous or-,
iginal variations into the art of
dance, ranging from the Square Dance
to the Suzy-Q, but thet American
Ballet Caravan, which will appear at
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre Dec.
11, is believed to be the first ballet
of native origin.
Lincoln Kirstein, who organized,
the Ballet Caravan, tells in a recent.
book of -his, "Blast at Ballet," his
reasons for forming a troupe of na-
tive American dancers. He created
his group of dancers as a rebellion
against what he calls "Russian tea-
roomish interpretations." Believing
that there are enough fine American,
dancers to divorce ballet in this coun-
try from foreign dominance, heI
founded the Caravan in 1937 and
has since led it on two transcontinen-
tal tours.
Name. American Cast
Kirstein selected only native Ameri-
cans for his troupe of dancers,
choregraphers, composers and de-
signers, and most of the ballets in

The Caravan will present three bal-

mode, with music by Bach and

two other ballets are American in
motif and interpretation.
'The Debutante'
"Charade, or the Debutante" is the
latest achievement of Lew Christen-
sen, balletmaster of the Caravan. It
takes place in a middle class Amer-
can home in a small town around
1910. The dancing is arranged on a.
basis of American popular dance mu-
sic of the period as adapted to ballet
form by Trude Rittmann, pianist and
musical collaborator of the Caravan,
The final ballet will be "City Por-
trait," a dance pantomime based on
life in a large American city. The
music is by Henry Brandt, known in
college circles for his arrangements
for Benny Goodman.
