Dances for Television
Dances for Television is a series of three dance vignettes exploring the relationships between ourselves, our environments, and our communities.
The dances are unique creations for the camera dance forms that cannot be performed on stage because the video shots and editing are part of the choreography. The series captures the dancing that’s happening all around us in our lives, provoking the notion that we are all dancers whether we are an elder, a young child in school, or a ballerina.
