Bascom Hill Historic DistrictWhen the University of Wisconsin started the country's first college dance program in 1926, the goal was to teach more than dance. The program's founder, Margaret H'Doubler, wanted the women's physical education program to be "worth a college woman's time," so she incorporated lessons on philosophy and art history. Under her direction, the university's dance program helped shape the world of modern dance and allowed thousands of students to explore the realm of creative expression.
