History of Dance, Utah
Taken from the Utah History Encyclopedia. (Links Added)

By 1909 the expansion of dance in the curriculum was noted when all physical education classes for women included dance in one form or another. The dance offered was folk dance as well as an adaption of classic dancing call the Gilbert Technique.

From 1913 to 1930, dance productions were listed as "dance dramas," "ballet pantomimes," and "natural rhythms." During this period, dance titles listed in the Utah Chronicle included Hiawatha, If I had a Tail, Scarfs, May Day Gallop, and the Hoary-Headed Dandelion. Directors were Georgia B. Johnson, Emily Brinton, Mattie Tipton, Blache Hayes, and Rhea Wahle Cornelius.

In 1930-31, Assistant Professor Myrtle E. Clancy made significant changes in the curriculum; titles and explanations of classes were altered.
