Overview

Since the advent of digital video technology, ’dance on camera’ has become an increasingly popular, and important genre of dance.

This is the first ever ’how-to’ manual for choreographers, dancers and students who want to make dance films.

Making Video Dance includes:

  • exercises to be used inside, or outside the classroom
  • a production diary
  • interviews with leading practitioners on both sides of the camera.

Also including a glossary of terms, anyone involved in making dance videos needs this helpful and remarkable book.
