Edna Bold in Manchester - between the 1900's and the 1910's

from The Long and short of it: being the recollections and reminiscences of Edna Bold, pages 54-55:

Not all love affairs are human. I began to sense this sounder, more enduring, more rewarding state of affairs when my serious involvement with Dance began. 

 

I danced as naturally as I walked from my earliest years. I improvised (as did most other children) to the tunes churned out by the barrel organs or my father’s gramophone. 

[…]

I was in the last year at the secondary school when my infatuation with the dance began. Madge Atkinson, together with her star pupils, came to demonstrate 'Natural Movement'.
