She established the high artistic standards that inform the School of Dance today and, with seriousness and style, set it on a path that has led to national prominence. Dickinson, known to friends and associates as'Bondie', led dance at the university from 1935 to 1963, a period that included the 1947 transition from Florida State College for Women to co-ed Florida State University. Her impact was powerful: in person, on stage, and within the institution. Before Dickinson's arrival on campus, tap and country dance were taught through physical education. To appreciate the revolution, remember that modern dance was still exactly that: new and unfamiliar (to put less euphemistically: strange).
Dickinson was a committed artist in this groundbreaking form. Twice she brought Martha Graham to campus.
During a 1949 appearance, Graham acknowledged to a Flambeau reporter that modern dance would be'difficult to understand. She also praised Dickinson for her'wonderful work with her group here.
