Dance in Video

From today through 13th March 2013, all students, faculty, and staff may access Dance in Video here.
"Dance in Video is the definitive video collection for the study of 20th Century concert dance, featuring the most influential performers and companies together with dozens of documentaries, interviews, and dance instruction videos. The collection provides coverage in breadth and depth for modern dance forms, and is relevant to dance history, dance analysis, dance instruction.  It includes an overview of 20th Century concert dance, including the forerunners and pioneers of modern dance, covering ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, experimental, and improvisation; an invaluable resource as dance is an inherently visual medium."

To get started, take a look at these custom playlists that feature samples of some of the great content included in this collection: Great Tappers, Partner dances, and CRWDSPCR.

These collections can be cross searched with all of our other video collections via 

Now that you're connected, please let us know what you think about it.  Email Alan Jones, our Drama and Dance Librarian via the Library website.

Make use of it while it is there.
