Record Series 619 contains the administrative files of the Department of Dance at the University of California, Los Angeles.
Dance at the University of California, Los Angeles began within the physical education department. Dance classes were offered as part of the physical education major and for general college students. A separate dance major was established in 1957. In 1962 the Department of Dance was established in the College of Fine Arts and a graduate program was established, offering a Master's degree in Dance. Founding Chair Alma H. Hawkins helped to develop the department into a model for other dance programs and departments around America and in Europe.
