Revived Greek Dance (1926)

Scope and Content

Brown leatherette album containing 122 images of Bedford Physical Training College students demonstrating various tableau and movements of the Revived Greek Dance from the Demonstration Day in 1926. The students are dressed in black tunics and have been photographed against a white backdrop set up in one of the College house gardens.

Freda Colwill, a former student of the College (1913-1915), was appointed as the College's first specialist in dance in 1916 and in all probability the album is most likely to have been created by her.
