About this Item

1) Photo Album: (1941-42). Octavo. (Kordelheftung). Half maroon cloth over tan paper-covered boards bound with decorative string. Printed plate mounted on first leaf: "Zur Erinnerung an das "Ausgezeichnet" im Entscheid beim IV. Sportgruppen-Wettbewerb im Juni 1941. B.S.G. Standard." Plate with two original signatures (unreadable) of the Betriebsführer and Betriebsobmann. Photographs range from 5" x 7" to 2 1/2" x 3 3/4" and are mounted or inserted on heavy card stock. The photos show the female Rogge dance group at practice and performing in their collective outfits with the DAF (Deutsche Arbeitsfront) emblem.

In 1927, after studying with the legendary pioneer of "Ausdruckstanz", Rudolf von Laban, she founded her own school and later became director of the "Hamburger Laban-Schule." Rogge's groundbreaking teachings focused on developing personality, character and self-expression through the medium of dance. Minor scuffing on cloth, boards slightly bowed. Few photos loose.
