Meaghan Noel Scholarship for Dance

Meaghan Noel was in the process of completing her Senior year at Salem State when she was tragically killed in an automobile accident in March of 2015. In an effort to keep Meaghan's passion for Dance and Education alive, her family has elected to establish a scholarship in her name at the University, so future students can be aided in pursuing their passion as well.

There will be a Golf Tournament held on Monday June 6th at President's Golf Club in Quincy MA to also raise funds for the Scholarship.  Spots are open for individual golfers and teams as well at this point, but they are filling up fast! Additionally, opportunities for businesses or individuals to sponsor a Hole are available for $25 and $50 donations. Please contact Sean Noel or Matt Noel directly for details or to register. You can also reach out to the family at This will be a fun tournament with 'closest to the pin' competitions, raffles, and an awesome lunch afterwards sponsored by the Randolph Lodge of Elks!

We are committed to reaching our goal of $25,000 to endow the scholarship and make sure that Meaghan's name and memory will continue at Salem State for many years to come. If you are not interested in golf, or simply are unable to join us that day, please take the opportunity to use this page as a way to donate and help us complete our goal! Please do not feel like you have to donate at least $25 to contribute here. Any amount will be accepted once you click the Give Now sign. $1, $5, doesn't matter, any and all support for this very worthy cause is greatly appreciated!

Walter Terry wrote, "No paints nor brushes, marbles nor chisels, pianos or violins are needed to make this art, for we are the stuff that dance is made of. It is born in our body, exists in our body and dies in our body. Dance, then, is the most personal of all the arts . . . it springs from the very breath of life."



Effort is a word introduced by Rudolph Laban. According to him, it is a mental impulse from which movement originates. There are four motion factors that constitute it: space (direct or indirect), weight (strong or light), time (sudden or sustained) and flow (bound and free).



An element of dance that refers to the immediate spherical space surrounding the body in all directions. Use of space includes shape, direction, path, range, and level of movement. Space is also the location of a performed dance.



A position of the body in space, such as curved, straight, angular, twisted, symmetrical, asymmetrical, etc



An element of dance involving rhythm, phrasing, tempo, accent, and duration. Time can be metered, as in music, or it can be based on body rhythms, such as breath, emotions, and heartbeat.
