Material related to the Hanya Holm Studio dominates this series. Correspondence concerns letters of recommendation, arrangements for studio visits, assessments of student potential, etc. The many roll books and tuition ledgers from 1937-1968 provide data regarding student and course registration at the Studio. Holm's interest in labanotation as a pedagogical tool is reflected in related articles and student exercises. Earlier material documents Holm's Dalcroze certification and teaching, as well as her work at the New York Wigman School of the Dance, Bennington College and other institutions.
