-Daily-Lynn wallas
University dance instructor who .recently studied dancing in
Berlin under Frau Mary Wigman, first modern dancer, helps
Joan Pfeiffer, '58. While in Germany Miss Pease noted extreme
differences in the attitudes of German and American youth.
Modern Dance Instructor
Observes German Students

"It is a shocking experience to
see what Naziism has done to the
young people of Germany," Esther
E. Pease, associate supervisor of
the Women's Physical Education
Department remarked.
Miss Pease's opportunity to ob-
serve and meet European young;
people came last fall when she,
studied dancing in the Western
Zone of Berlin with Frau Mary
Wigman. Miss Wigman is known
as "the first modern dancer," Miss
Pease said.
The students ranged in age from
17 to 22 years and were studying
professionally for ballet and opera.
Miss Pease ,mentioned that most
of them were studying on scholar-
ships, financed by the Berlin Sen-
ate, governing body of the Wes-
tern Zone.
Students Selected
"On a competitive basis, stud-
ents were selected to be trained as
the future professional dancers of
Germany," Miss Pease remarked.
"The scholarships granted are very
small, about $15 a month, which
for most students is their only in-
"The government also sends one
hot meal a day to the studio for
each student," she said. "This
meal usually arrives at the school
by truck at noon."
Miss Pease related that "many
students are separated from their
families, who live in the Russian
Zone, consequently, the students
are completely independent."
Live in Ruins
"The circumstances under which
they are living are almost unbe-
lievable-in the rubble of cellars
and in partially destroyed build-
Many are living in Dahlem, once
fashionable section of Berlin where
Nazi bigwigs lived and an impor-
tant target for the Allies. Now
trees and shrubs grow in the rub-
ble and vines are crawling over
broken down walls." Miss Pease

I Events

estimated that five of every seven
houses were completely dstroyed.
"Standards of living in Brlin are
extremely low," Miss Pease contin-
ued. She said that the students
pay little attention to cleanliness
or to such incidentals as mended
clothes. "Many don't even have
access to water to wash in," she
"These student dancers have
learned that they must live by
their own wits, as a matter of self-
survival. Because of this necess-
ity, they tend to have little feel-
ing or consideration for other in-
dividuals," Miss Pease related,
"and no sense of group cohesive-
ness or of working for a common
"These qualities show up in
their -dancing," she said. "They
prefer to dance for themselves and
to their own thoughts rather than
participate in group dancing, as
is frequently practiced by Ameri-
can dancers."
"They are exciting dancers to
watch," she remarked, "because of
their self-centeredness, drive and
"One of the main contrasts be-
tween American and German
youth is shown in these dancers,"
Miss Pease stated. "They live their
whole lives in and around the
dancing school, while Americans
tend to have several activities and
interests without concentrating so
hard on a special one."
