Loring, Eugene, 1911-1982. Papers, ca. 1938-1981.
Scope and Content Note
The Eugene Loring Papers document several aspects of Loring's career from 1938 to 1981. He kept extensive notes related to his productions and teaching theories. He also often wrote and spoke about his philosophy of dance, transcripts of which are found in these papers. Being a trained musician, Loring frequently notated his choreography on musical charts or scores. His teaching records include numerous ballet syllabi on six different levels of technique. Loring also expressed himself through drawings, poetry, and prose found among his diaries and personal notes.
Certain non-manuscript materials received with the original gift have been removed from the Eugene Loring Papers. All newspaper and magazine articles, programs, photographs, scrapbooks, films, videotapes, audio tapes and musical scores have been dispersed throughout the Dance Collection. A separation list, located at the end of the folder list, indicates the nature and disposition of these items.
