"Dr. Laban, I want to continue
with modern dance, can you help
Every afternoon at the close of
daily dance sessions the little of-
fice across from Barbour Gym
dance studio is filled with inquisi-
tive enthusiasts of modern dance.
Despite strenuous practice and
aching limbs, the dance pupils of
Dr. Juanna de Laban of the physi-
cal education department keep
coming back for more, asking for
added information, and displaying
increased interest in the field of
dance creation.
Dance Groups Enthusiastic
The new instructor; with -her
colorful European background
and wealth of experience in all
aspects of the dance, is impart-
ing a greater meaning of the bene-
ficial experience of the dance to
her classes. Almost a third of her
freshman dance groups have ex-
pressed desires to take further in-
A typical Laban classroom gives
a hint of the reasons for the re-
cent excitement about the dance:
there are twenty individuals and
twenty strikingly different dance
creations. After a rythymic pat-
tern is set and the elements
stressed, each person is asked to
interpose his own interpretation.
The classes are intrigued by the
prospect of working out these
dance problems individually.
Dance Is Emotional Outlet
"Dance is a medium to enhance
the individual's expressive and
creative side," says Dr. Laban. "I
teach them a fundamental, and
then they explore its possibilities
on their own."
Though a knowledge of dance
mechanics is necessary, she be-
lieves that the most important
aspect of modern dance is its
power to bring out the innate
qualities of the individual and
provide an otitlet for his feelings.
Health IBciefitted
The increased interest i mnod-i
ern dance has also evolved along
more practical lines. Those at-
tending Dr. Laban's classes are be-
ing "conditioned" for other cam-
pus activities and schoolwork.
Correct posture, appearance,
and general poise not only make a
good impression in the classroom
but in other important aspects of

college life. In learning "how yourj
body reacts to you," as phrased by
this exponent of modern dance,
those in her classes are losing
awkardness and gaining a self as-
surance helpful to college life.
Aids Appearance
Accompanying. these benefits
are the ever-popular figure im-
provement possibilities. Dr. Laban
asserts that a number of her stu-
dents have gained or lost weight,
become taller and removed inches
in the right places.
"Of course," adds Dr. Laban.,
"the dance conditions one for oth-
er sports because it teaches exact
rhythmic response, which is nec-
essary to all athletic activity."
Dr. Laban, in her dance crea-
tion work with University stu-
dents, is following the pattern set
by her father, Dr. Rudolf de Lab-
an, well known Hungarian choreo-
grapher who invented the present
"Laban System" of dance nota-
