Location

HE Dillenbeck School of Expression has the advantage of being located in Kansas City, Missouri, a mid-western city of culture and refinement,
     a great commercial center, resourceful and inspiring in many lines for students.  The school is located on the second floor of the Studio Building, northwest corner of Ninth and Locust streets, one block from two main car lines, away from much of the noise and dust and at the same time within easy reach of the business district.

     Elevator service until 9 o'clock in the evening.

     In addition to the regular class rooms we have at out command a large auditorium for our public recitals.  The Board of Education rooms and the Public Library are on the opposite corner, the imposing quarters of the Young Men's Christian Association is only a block away, the central building of the Young Women's Christian Association is two blocks away, the Art Institute two blocks away, many eminent teachers of music are in the immediate building, all offering advantages to the student.  Our surroundings are ideal.

 

DESIGN OF THE SCHOOL

"Mend your speech a little, lest it may mar your fortunes."

-- SHAKESPEARE   -- KING LEAR.       

     The primary object of our school is to teach Expression as an art or personal culture whether the aim of the student is public speaking, platform reading, teacher of the art, Lyceum or Chautauqua work, or merely grace and ease in private conversation.

     The work in the courses being both educative and practical, it not only cultivates the intellectual and physical faculties, but the charm of personality which is so necessary in the successful man or woman in every vocation in life.  Our training develops the mind and the body as well as the voice.

     Our school produces teachers of Expression, Physical Culture, Literature, thoroughly competent to take positions in the best schools and colleges.

     The result of this design, which includes all the most advanced educative ideas, is the success of twenty-two years of fruitful progress.
