Dancetime Publications

Dancetime Publications Owned/operated by Yauri Dalencour, dancer; digital archivist; scholar; ethnographer and visual artist; Dancetime Publications is the preeminent producer of dance history documentaries in the world.

DTP was acquired from dance historian Carol Teten in 2017 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.

Each day is a new one 🌿. We have the opportunity to start all over again or pick up where we left off from the day before.

Can dance be a metaphor for the way you live your life?💯

Wishing You a Prosperous Chinese New Year from Dancetime Publications! 🐲🦁🐉

Many gorgeous creatures are common at celebrations and parades during Chinese New Year! Here is how we tell the difference between Dragon and Lion Dances at celebrations aside from seeing them as two different beautiful animals decked out in design and fancy ... the performers who manipulate them from the inside!

Dragon costumes are controlled by many performers within the costume in order to manipulate the body of the dragon and guide the poles where necessary which mount and frame the creatures body.

Lion costumes have two performers within the costume; one performer who controls the hindquarters and the second who controls the mouth, head and front legs.

Perfect resource for virtual/distance learning, homeschooling, Black History Month, African American History, American History, Dance History, researchers, dancers and choreographers, dance enthusiasts and more!

Streamed or purchased on DVD, this film represents an incredible opportunity to access historical dance clips in a well-composed collection. Until now, many of the clips were lost to the public. Highlights include elegant performances from the silent film era, Black Bottom clips demonstrating colloquial roots, newsreels of Charleston contests, and grueling couple dancing in almost unending dance marathons. The video also includes a variety of the finest clips available of the show-stopping Lindy Hop and more!

Cover reveal! We're in awe of the stunning cover of Misty Copeland's new middle-grade book, BLACK BALLERINAS.

"Part of my mission is to bring awareness to the contributions of Black ballerinas. To give a sense of the rich histories of those who may not be documented in ballet history books, yet their careers — and legacies — are no less valuable and inspiring."

Read more about BLACK BALLERINAS at the link in our bio!

DANCING THE BIG APPLE 1937: African Americans Inspire a National Craze

This suite of DVDs provide a very illuminating window to the importance of African American dance traditions in the American culture. The dance, THE BIG APPLE, started from simple roots in the South and grew into a powerful force and expression of a pivotal era in American history. HIP HOP dance was first influenced by Hispanics and African Americans. Starting as an explosive street expression, it has become the bedrock of vibrant creativity for the current generation.

From Social Justice to Social Distancing, 2020 had us speechless, humbled, not really sure and/or ready to tackle whatever was next. We can all agree it was an unprecedented year. Hopefully with the good and bad we can see see some silver lining and perhaps take some good as we press forward. We can look ahead to 2021 by first reflecting on the many things that brought us through to this new year.

Here are a few of DTP’s highlights we’d love to share with you. Please share some with us!!

Cheers and to many more in 2021! We love you and we stand together.

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.
