Dancing for Suffrage: Lecture-Demonstration Registration
Experience Florence Fleming Noyes’s "Dance of Freedom," as reconstructed from archival film and newspaper records by certified Noyes Rhythm teacher and legacy Isadora Duncan dancer Meg Brooker. Performed for women’s suffrage leader Anna Howard Shaw’s birthday in 1914, the dance depicts a journey from physical restraint to freedom of movement. This lecture-demonstration utilizes archival dance resources to explore the role of dance in social and political advocacy as part of the women’s suffrage movement and to generate conversations about the contemporary role of dance as a tool for advocacy. This lecture-demonstration includes screening of archival film, as well as MTSU Dance Theatre students creative work in response to the film. This project was featured in a fall 2020 Dance Teacher Magazine article "This Dance was Part of the Women's Suffrage Movement."
