1935 Figure Figure THE REDPATH BUREAU presents A Dance Recital TAMIRIS and Her World Famous Concert Group They Make Dancing INTERESTING ELOQUENT DYNAMIC EXCITING TAMIRIS America's Leading Exponent of the Modern Dance And Her Famous Concert Group TAMIRIS, probably more than any one else, is making modern dance history in America. Ever since she presented her first program of American Rhythms in a solo dance recital at the Little Theater, New York, in 1927, she has been acclaimed by leading New York critics as America's most American dancer. Her New York appearances with her famous Concert Group are always major dance events. In 1928 she was invited to dance at the Salzburg Festival, the first American dancer since Isadora Duncan. Her appearances in Salzburg, Berlin and Paris were triumphs. She returned to Europe in 1930 and 1935 for new triumphs. In 1933 she gave a solo program with the New York Philharmonic Society under the baton of Hans Lange at the Lewisohn Theater. At present she is the Dance Director of the Group Theater in New York and is also Director of the School of the American Dance. Tamiris' technique is a result of many years of experimentation and is definitely her own. One feels in her a lyricism of big city streets, of modern life. Each member of Tamiris' famed Group is a brilliant dance soloist. For the concert programs, Genevieve Pitot, noted New York composer will be at the piano. Miss Pitot has written special music for some of the numbers. By special arrangement, Tamiris will hold a dance clinic, or dance lecture-demonstration, during the day of her appearance. This has proven especially popular with Physical Education Departments of colleges and universities. Typical Dance Recital Program I. Camaraderie E.
