Take a look at www.videogo.com. Just search "dance' as a keyword.

Good prices and service.

Hi Kathy,
Here are some potential vendors, though some are much more expensive
than others--

Contemporary Arts Media:
http://www.artfilms.com.au/
(based in Australia, but usually has NTSC versions available)

Insight Media:
http://www.insight-media.com/IMHome.htm

ADF Video:
http://www.adfvideo.com/about.html

Rapt Productions:
http://www.raptproductions.com/pages/film.html
("Artists in Exile" is more of a documentary, but features many clips)

Shop PBS:
http://teacher.shop.pbs.org/home/index.jsp
[recent titles of possible interest: Grupo Corpo Brazilian Dance
Theatre; Born to be Wild; Blast; Beyond the Steps: Alvin Ailey Dance
Theater; Dancing in the Light]

Electronic Arts Intermix:
http://eai.org/eai/

Video Data Bank:
http://www.vdb.org/

Open Eye Pictures:
http://www.openeyepictures.com/

Another idea might be to consider some of the commercial videos on newer
types of dance that rarely get classed as "high art," including Krump
(i.e. films like Rize and Battle Night: The Krump Wars).

Hi

Does anyone have good sources for contemporary--I should say--post 80's
dance performance. Not dancing with the stars type stuff, but more stage
performance, experimental, contact improv, etc. Our dance division is
starving for new work to show students.
Thanks,
Kathy
