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 Online: Dance in Video addresses this key need for today’s dance students by providing 900 hours of video content covering the full scope of 20th and 21st century dance. The collection includes performances, documentaries, interviews, and instructional videos from the most influential performers and companies. The diverse content supports a wide range of courses, from dance history and dance appreciation to choreography, dance composition, and improvisation.
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.
Dance in Video: Volume II 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.
