Teaching history and science by dance

It is history day. Early American history is the theme. Appear two maidens light of feet, straight and slender of limbs, enraptured of eyes. They represent the spirit of America, the spirit that prompted the natives to believe that Columbus and his followers were angels and to bear to the great adventurer food and drink and precious wares as gifts.
The discovery of America is made memorable by a dance.

The flight of the Sabine women, the overthrow of Napoleon, Galileo's discovery that the world moves, the eruption of Vesuvius, the destruction of Pompeii, the discovery of the circulation of the blood are among themes the Morgan dancers will depict in their college tour. Chemistry, physics, geology, ethnology, electricity—none of these is disconcerting to the missionaries of learning.
