Abstract

Dance was used by Physical Educations as an appropriate form of exercise for women in the early 20th century. Dance in Universities continued to change with the popularity of Pageants, such as the May Day Pageant, and the introduction of Creative Dance. Early dance classes were made up of appropriate versions of Folk Dances, however through the use of Pageants by Oregon Normal School many other types of dance, including Modern Dance, became full time classes. A short recreation of the May Day Pageants will be included.
