New digital collection: The Broncos Are Dancing!

BSU Library and Special Collections are pleased to announce the first digital collection entitled "The Broncos Are Dancing!" You can view the collection at http://library.boisestate.edu/Special/BroncosDancing.htm.

Dances have been an important part of student life at Boise State since the junior college days. The Broncos Are Dancing! offers a glimpse into student life and changes to campus over the span of almost fifty years, 1930s to 70s, from the swing era to disco. Included are photographs, dance cards, and excerpts from the student newspaper, Roundup. Photographs include scenes of students dancing at numerous school sponsored events, including Homecoming, President's Ball, Christmas Formal, Sweethearts Ball, Christmas and Spring Formals, and school mixers. The images and objects in the The Broncos Are Dancing! collection represent only a fraction of holdings in BSU University Archives related to dance.
