Dance on Camera, the most comprehensive resource available on dance films and videos in current distribution in the United States, is an essential tool for any dance and/or film reference collection. Following a foreword by Jacques d'Amboise, former principal dancer and choreographer for the New York City Ballet, are five essays by recognized authorities in the field, and ten exhaustive indexes. The main section, arranged alphabetically by film title, lists and annotates approximately 1400 films and videos, covering the full range of dance from around the world. Each entry includes the date of production, running time, format and distributor; credits are given for producer, director, choreographer, principal dancers, dance company, and composer. A brief description indicates the content, names of the excerpts or full-length dances included, and often titles of other related films. Coverage is through 1996. Films are indexed by series title, by award(s) won, by subject, and by dances excerpted in the film. A directory of distributors provides a quick and easy look-up for order information. A list of dance/film resources, both domestic and international, rounds out the volume. Illustrated with stills from a variety of dance films and videos.
