DEPARTMENT OF DRAMATIC ART AND EXPRESSION
In all fields of endeavor the keynote of success is personality. The vital
significance of the study of expression to each individual lies .in the fact that it
deals essentially with the development and expression of personality. Through
reading comes the opportunity to enlarge one's intellectual, imaginative and
In oral interpretation of literature, the desire to harmonize feeling with
thought, to gain a mastery of self in thought and emotion, and to express in our
own lives the recognized relationships between the life inside us and the world
without -us, means a gain in our ability towards self-expression, through the
medium of the voice and body and as a consequence an enrichment of that inde-
pendent psychologrical force which we term personality.
The wo1'k of the department of Expression and Dramatic Art is presented
in small classes combined with private lessons, each course of study being adapted
to meet the needs of the individual. School children may enroll for one class or
for two classes with the privilege of one private lesson a week for repertoire.

FUNDAMENTALS OF EXPRESSION AND LITERARY
The ability to interpret orally the printed page connates a training in clear and logical
thinking, in physical poise, in conversational fluency, in emotional control, and in sympathetic
appreciation, which is the purpose ofthe outlined course. Alertness, which is the first requisite
of a reader, implies a focused attention, expectant interest and a mental and physical readiness
to act, which transforms the words of the printed page into living thought, with the reader,
as the medium for the expression of thc message. The desire to convey this thought, to present
this picture, to portray this emotion sincerely and sympathetically means the elimination of
self-consciousness, the stimulation of intellectual and emotional responsiveness and the
broadening of the social sympathies. The awakening of personality comes with this desire
toward self-expression, and to render the voice and body .more adequate for the expression of
personality is the basic principle of the first year of study.
