Full Details

Dance Online: Dance in Video Volumes I & II contains over 900 dance productions and documentaries by the most influential performers and companies of the 20th century. Selections cover ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, experimental, and improvisational dance, as well as forerunners of the forms and the pioneers of modern concert dance.

 

Features

For students and scholars of dance, no learning experience can compare to witnessing the masters at work. Unfortunately, access to high-caliber live performances is often limited. Without exposure to a wide range of performances, classroom techniques and text study often fail to come to life for students. As a result, many important nuances are lost.

Dance in Video: Volume I lays the foundation for the study of dance in all its forms with 500 hours of content in modern dance, ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, experimental, and more.

The second volume expands upon the foundation built in Volume I, providing 400 hours of video that showcase a new catalogue of dancers and partners including the Joffrey Ballet, John Jasperse Company, Cloud Gate Dance Theatre, Bavarian State Ballet, Royal Ballet of Cambodia, Kirov Ballet, and Compañía Nacional de Danza.
