BY CECIL SMITH.
One of the best shows in to being presented at the Goodman thea-1 ler this week by Katherine Dunhar and her Negro dance group. Th opening bill of the Art institute | dance series, the program will be peated tonight, tomorrow, and Sal day evenings, and is open to the gen-1 eral public.
The program touches upon a wide I range of cbaraeteristic racial dance I art, (rom the mystical, symbolic c monial movements of Haitian ritual | to a group of riotous c " le jazz hot, " in the Harlem n Rumbas from Cuba and Mexico f presented in striking contrast lyric Peruvian peasant dances.
The concert ends with a sequence alter Joel Chandler Harris' favorite Uncle Remus stories, entitled "Bre'r Rabbit an' de Tah Baby."
It is all illuminated by the high imagination, good taste, and solid command of choreography which are typical of Miss Dunham's work. Two. notable male dancers, Talley Beatty and Archie Savage, figure exhilarat-| ingly in her supporting company.
Only one poor attempt, the phonj "Tableaux of Spanish Earth" [quite I out of Miss Dunham's real metierl, | and badly planned and timed lightin mar an otherwise superlatively n warding evening in the theater.
