Salient.The Newspaper of Victoria University College. Vol. 19, No. 4. April 6, 1955


Some of the activities conducted by the Physical Education Department of the College are intended primarily as a preparation or training for particular sports. There are many groups however that form to participate in activities for their recreational value alone. In the easy informal atmosphere of the Dance Classes, there is opportunity for the sharing of pleasures and the widening of one's circle of friends. Added to this is the enjoyment of self-expression to be found in translating music into rhythmical movement.

There are many people within the college who wish to dance but lack the confidence necessary to do so on the several social occasions when the opportunity has been present. Last year it was possible to arrange tuition for approximately twenty-five students. This year one hundred and fifty students have expressed a desire to attend ballroom dancing classes, but very few have done anything towards the establishment of a group in which their wishes can be met.
