The Arthur Hall Collection
Arthur Hall Afro American
Dance Ensemble Alumni
First, to work to establish the "Arthur Hall International Dance Center"
as Arthur envisioned it, based in Maine and in Philadelphia,
to teach Arthur's choreography and the songs and rhythms long associated
with the Arthur Hall Afro American Dance Ensemble,
to pass on Arthur's legacy,
to provide a summer respite for inner-city youth, and
"Perhaps to Create what does Not Yet Exist."
Second, to disseminate Arthur's educational curriculum for schools
and for community development organizations using films and visiting artists
trained in Arthur's techniques that foster student development
through drumming and movement.
Third, to develop funding proposals for educational programs and related activities
of The Arthur Hall Afro American Dance Ensemble Alumni,
for the preservation activities of the Arthur Hall Collection,
and for the production activities of Ile Ife Films.
Fourth, to preserve, document, archive, and disseminate
the materials in the Arthur Hall Collection,
storing original materials in climate-controlled facilities,
creating a digital archive of the collection,
and working with established institutions in Philadelphia and elsewhere
to ensure lasting, international accessibility of the collection
at high standards in several media.
Fifth, to produce DVD editions of materials in the Arthur Hall Collection
for use by schools, libraries, and private collectors.
