Allies' Dance at EMU, 1918

A photo from the 1918 EMU "Aurora" yearbook, whose caption says:

"One form of what might be termed 'athletics' in which our college girls are trained and in which some excel, is aesthetic dancing. With its combined vigor and grace it affords a popular type of exercise.

"This year, with our thoughts filled with patriotism, a pretty dance was worked out and costumed to represent the Allies. The dance was given at the Middle Western Physical Educational Conference in Detroit, and at the Annual Demonstration here in the Auditorium. The picture gives two of the four groups who presented it."
