"The Dance on Camera Festival is one of those NY stealth events, prized by its devotees...where the allusiveness of dance meets the intimacy of film to create a new kind of magic" --New York Times

Coming to Ann Arbor directly from Dance Films Association's 39th Dance On Camera Festival in New York City, this screening celebrates the immediacy, energy, and mystery of dance on film. Dance on Camera is the oldest dance film festival in the world and sparked a global explosion of activity around the medium; 2011 marks the 10th year of bringing it to Ann Arbor.

This program is copresented by UMMA, the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance, and the Department of Screen Arts and Culture. Special thanks to Dance Films Association, NYC.
