Juana de Laban Dance Collection



Overview of the Collection

Creator:Laban, Juana de
Title:Juana de Laban Collection
Dates:1924-1976
Abstract:When Juana de Laban learned in 1978 that her life was coming to an end, she instructed her cousin Elizabeth Hecht Miller, executrix of her estate, to transfer ownership of her extensive dance collection to Robyn Baker Flatt. Juana de Laban and Flatt met in 1954 when Flatt's father, Dr. Paul Baker, founding director of the Dallas Theatre Center (DTC), engaged Laban as Associate Professor for the drama department at Baylor University in Waco, Texas. Although Laban had instructed her cousin to give the collection to Flatt, both Miller and Flatt believed it best to donate the collection to the DTC for tax reasons. Following Laban's death in 1978, her cousin Elizabeth Miller transferred ownership of the dance collection to the DTC. This collection remained housed at the DTC for four years. In 1982, the DTC was in a period of turmoil. Paul Baker was fired from his twenty-six year position as Artistic Director of the DTC. Fearing that the collection was about to be given to a repository in another city Flatt quickly arranged for the transfer of the collection to the Dallas Public Library (DPL).
Accession No.:MA 91-9
Quantity:45 cubic feet (63 boxes)

Biographical Note

Juana de Laban von Varalja was an internationally recognized teacher, performer, choreographer, director, author, critic, and theatre and dance history scholar. As a dance educator, Laban influenced the development of the pedagogy of dance history and research. Juana de Laban, the eldest daughter of Rudolf von Laban and Maya Lenares, was born on October 21, 1910. Laban's mother was a famous Italian opera singer and her father was a world-famous movement analyst, philosopher, writer, director, choreographer, and dancer who developed the Labanotation dance notation system. Laban's early years were dominated by the tutelage of her father. By 1934, she had earned a diploma from the Royal Hungarian Academy in Budapest where she specialized in the national dances of Hungary. During the mid-1930's, she toured Austria, Switzerland, and Germany as a solo danseuse and served as a critic for The Dancing Times and Der Tanz. Her understanding of the arts and fluency in five languages provided her with a world picture that was to guide her professional career.

At the onset of WWII in 1938, she immigrated to the United States. In 1939, Laban and dance partner, Frances Bartha, toured together and opened the Laban Dance Studio in New York City. In 1941, she began her American academic training at Yale University, completing a Master of Fine Arts in 1943 and a Doctor of Philosophy degree in theatre arts in 1947.

After graduation, Laban shifted her focus away from performing to concentrate on her role as educator. She built her career in academia through a series of posts in American public institutions, teaching and speaking on modern educational dance, folk dancing, and the role of dance as part of a fine arts curriculum. In 1954, Paul Baker, chairman of the drama department at Baylor University, recruited Laban to head the graduate division for drama, where she taught stage movement and theatre history. The next eight years were exceptionally fruitful for Laban: developing new courses; spearheading a national trend to train actors in movement; directing and choreographing student productions; and teaching in South America on a Fulbright Lectureship.

In 1963, Laban accepted a position at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), where she returned to a position within a dance department. Here she concentrated on teaching, publishing, and speaking about the importance of scholarly research and the study of dance history. As an early member of the Committee on Research in Dance (CORD), Laban helped shape the development of this organization. By 1967, Laban became so committed to scholarly research that she founded a private business, the Dance Research Associates, to perform research assignments on a request basis.

Because of her distinguished reputation, Southern Methodist University in Dallas recruited Laban to head the burgeoning graduate dance program in 1971. Upon her return to Dallas, Laban renewed her association with the DTC and Paul Baker. Robyn Baker Flatt, a former student and Baker's daughter, appointed Laban to the DTC graduate program in 1973. Ill health forced her retirement to Temple, TX where she died of cancer in 1978, at the age of 68.

Scope and Contents

The scope of the Juana de Laban Dance Collection housed at the Dallas Public Library is so broad that it can serve as an important general resource for international research on the many idioms of dance and for the study of human movement. The size of the collection is impressive. The collection consists of 45 cubic feet of manuscript and non-manuscript items, 1,000 volumes of printed materials and 1,100 issues of 20 serial subscriptions.

The manuscript and non-manuscript items in the Juana de Laban Dance Collection consist of 63 boxes of materials stored in the Texas/Dallas History and Archives Division. The handwritten and typed manuscript items include correspondence, notebooks, card files, drafts of articles, book reviews, lectures, and speeches. Non-manuscript materials, such as photographs, slides, glass transparencies, motion pictures, film strips, audio tapes, music scores, and dance notation scores are also present in the collection.

One seventh of the collection's books were written in foreign languages. Most of these required original Library of Congress cataloging. The books, journals, and phonograph recordings have been dispersed into the Fine Arts Division holdings. Other textual items which do not bear a direct relationship to Juana de Laban's research and writings were incorporated within the vertical files of the Fine Arts Division.

The collection is strongest in those materials which pertain to: Laban's professional life and contributions to dance; her father, Rudolph von Laban, and his theories regarding dance and human movement; Albrecht Knust, a researcher who aided in the development of Labanotation; Ruth St. Denis, an early architect of modern dance; dance in Germany at the turn of the century; and various contemporary and historical movement notation systems.

Arrangement

Following are repeated practices observed by the compiler of this register:
Abbreviations: The names used most frequently throughout the register, Juana de Laban and Rudolf von Laban, have been abbreviated to JdL and RvL respectively.
Correspondence: The name of the writer of a letter is given first, the recipient, after the slash. Two or more writers indicate a joint letter.
Fragments: Incomplete documents have been designated as fragments. In many cases, only a portion of the identifying information regarding the document is available. In this case, what is known is given and what is not known is omitted.
Photographs: Photographs from the same piece, taken at the same time, have been grouped in a single folder or series of folders. The same is true for portraits. Whenever photographs of a single artist appear in separate folders, it has been assumed that they represent different dance pieces, costumes, or time periods. Unless otherwise designated, performers in a titled work were photographed in costume.
Titles: Most titles have been taken from the manuscripts themselves. Titles of articles, lectures, dance concerts have been placed in quotation marks. Titles of books and journals and performances of plays and major dance works have been underlined. Minor works have been placed in quotation marks. At times, a title has not been identified and a descriptive title has been supplied within brackets by the compiler to elucidate the subject matter. Entries that have not been capitalized, such as miscellaneous research materials, indicate a description of the contents of a folder rather than a title.
?: A question mark denotes uncertainty on the part of the compiler. For example, a question mark following a name has been placed there because the handwriting was illegible.
This collection is arranged topically. Due to size, this inventory has been divided into two separate units which can be accessed by clicking on the highlighted text.

SERIES XI - Card Files (Boxes 19-31)

Six subseries have beed identified for this series. The original order created by JdL has been preserved. Almost all of the cards in this series are holograph bibliographic entries which are predominantly annotated. The first and second subseries, M.F.A. THESIS PREPARATION NOTES ca. 1943 and Ph.D. RESEARCH ca. 1946-1947, were generated during her years at Yale University. UCLA LIBRARY REQUISITIONS AND HOLDINGS represents records JdL kept when she worked on building the dance holdings of the UCLA library. LATIN AMERICAN DANCE RESEARCH was developed by JdL as part of her work with the UCLA Latin American Studies Extension Program. UCLA/SMU LIBRARY REQUISITIONS exemplifies JdL's use of UCLA library order receipts to strengthen the dance holdings at the SMU library. DANCE FILMS contains a list of films on the dance available from a variety of distributors. JdL organized this file based on general categories such as Ethnic and Folk, Ballet, Modern Dance, Experimental, and Mime to name a few.

Series XII - Visual Works (Boxes 32-39)

PHOTOGRAPHS, CONTACT SHEETS AND NEGATIVES, SLIDES, and MOTION PICTURES, and NEGATIVES OF SLIDES comprise this series. The PHOTOGRAPHS in this series are different from other prints in the collection in that they were taken to promote JdL professionally as a dancer or educator spanning the years 1927 to 1976. Her vitality as a performer is documented in the Hungarian folk dance pictures in this subseries. See also oversized box 57, folders 1-3. CONTACT SHEETS AND NEGATIVES represent two performances she directed at Baylor University: The Would-Be Gentleman and Lazarus Laughed. JdL amassed an extensive slide collection which was used primarily for her speaking engagements and classroom lectures. A small number of the SLIDES also documents personal events and student performances. In addition, she retained copies of the negatives in the slide collection, found in NEGATIVES OF SLIDES. The films in the MOTION PICTURES subseries range from a home movie focussing on RvL to a music instructional film in which JdL staged historical dances from the Middle Ages. Also included is "Ancestral Experiences," a modern dance work set on dancers at Texas Christian University, Fort Worth. However, most are visual records of JdL's student productions at Baylor University. The contents of each subseries are arranged chronologically.

SERIES XV - RUDOLF von LABAN (Boxes 45-46)

This series is divided into six categories. The first subseries, WORKS BY, is separated between published works from 1924 to 1957, plus a 1971 reprint, and performances arranged from 1917 to 1958. WORKS ABOUT includes articles, reviews, clippings, and broadsides about RvL spanning the years from 1921 to 1977. Promotional materials and study guides from his schools in England were placed chronologically in LABAN SCHOOLS. The CONTEMPORARIES section includes papers, programs, and clippings by and about RvL colleagues. Most of these are by Albrecht Knust. Ephemerata is found in MISCELLANEOUS. The photographs in the VISUAL WORKS subseries span the years 1880 to 1955. These include some rare personal photographs of RvL ca. 1900. In addition, this subseries includes pencil drawings, silhouette art, and a bronze medallian of RvL in profile. See also oversized box 58, folders 1-3.

Series XVI Notation (Box 47)

At an early age, JdL learned her father's movement notation system. This foundation was instrumental in fostering her curiosity in the history and practice of writing movement; hence, the four broad subject headings in this series reflect her abiding interest in this topic. Materials within the DANCE NOTATION BUREAU are arranged both hierarchically and chronologically. The folders begin with general information including by-laws, course descriptions, conferences, reports and informational handouts. They are then followed by specific newletters and journals, such as the DNB Newsletter and Dance Notation Record. SYSTEMS includes information on specific notation systems, such as Babitz, Benesh, and Labanotation. Folders within this subgroup are ordered by the name of the notation system first and then by date on each document. See also oversized box 59, folders 1-3. The third subseries contains notation ARTICLES found in numerous dance journals and magazines ordered from 1939 to 1968. Miscellaneous RESOURCE MATERIALS are found in the final group.
