Founded by renowned dance historian and teacher Carol Teten, Dancetime Publications is the preeminent producer of dance history documentaries in the world
Dancetime Publications videos provide instruction, historical context, and entertainment for all dance lovers. Through our film documentaries and videos, novices, experts, choreographers, students, and teachers relive the music, fashion, and movements that comprise the heritage of Western dance. Dancetime Publications maintains a partnership with Amazon.com to provide reliable, excellent service and access to a constantly growing variety of dance videos, such as in-depth studies of traditional and contemporary ballet, international folk, modern, jazz, and tap styles. Built upon decades of research and hundreds of years of artifacts, our repertoire of digital media seeks to fill gaps in the study of social dance. We begin our collection with the social dances of 15th and 16th century renaissance Italian courts, such as the dignified ballo and the lively volta. Next, we reach deep into the 17th and 18th century French baroque court, where elegant minuets and intricate court dances gave rise to many of our classical traditions, including ballet. Follow the evolution of dance into 19th century romantic waltzes, quadrilles, and cotillions, and watch as we plunge into the 20th century, when America’s multicultural roots shaped contemporary dance movements. Dance fads such as ragtime, jazz, and hip-hop were born from Latin and African-American roots in ballrooms and urban street scenes.
Mission: Dancetime Publications is a publishing house creating film documentaries and dance history videos that capture the research, preservation, and performance of dance through the ages. We also provide access to virtually every dance history video available online. No other company offers so much of the ephemeral experience of dance on video, making the evolution of Western dance more accessible than ever before.

Check out this great article on Vandana Hart and her work, now on Netflix!
Even as a teen, Vandana Hart knew she wasn't headed for a cookie-cutter dance career. "Growing up with a family that really cared about social change, pursuing dance as a standalone career—without linking it to something more—felt like I wasn't completely fulfilling my purpose," she says.

"Saul Williams provides the backing poem, For Misty, with words as lyrical as her movements.
The systemic structure built to keep me in place

Black and woman

Koma Otake, of the Japanese performance duo Eiko and Koma on his love for movement and the artistic spirit! An in depth look at 'The Ghost Festival'.
"In “The Ghost Festival,” Koma sees himself as the mediator: He embeds the work with veiled references to his own dance ancestors, letting his movement continually changes texture, from delicate and brash to dreamy."
In “The Ghost Festival” at Danspace Project, his first solo show, Koma pays homage to his dance ancestors.

...and #Acting too? Watch out now!
"Acting will be an integral part of getting her through it. Yes, she is Ballet Theater’s first African-American female principal, but Ms. Copeland has, perhaps more subtly, carved out another space for herself: as a ballerina with true acting chops."
Full story here on the The New York Times
Ms. Copeland takes on Kitri and Giselle this season. The key? Diving deep. “It’s making the character so much more important than the steps,” she says.
There is so much of the beauty of dance in the headlines this week! Be sure to check out what Alvin Ailey is bringing to Southern California!

REVIEW: Sydney Dance Company
"Full Moon, in its world premiere, opens Sydney Dance Company’s new double bill, Orb. Wearing flowing, often absurdist costumes (one girl is almost drowning in a giant red outfit that looks like an exotic feathered bird), the performers twitch and twirl and turn to an invisible gravitational pull. A dancer in a striped dress pirouettes like a little girl. A man stands on his head, slowly cycling his nude legs upside down, a moving, off-kilter statue."

"While there were signs of what scientists call "degeneration" in white matter, which is the brain's wiring, in most of the participants, the distribution remarkably varied among the group. Scientists found improvement in the group that engaged in dancing."
