Dancing In Commercial Motion Pictures

Mary Jane Hungerford

"Dancing in Commercial Motion Pictures" is an interesting treatise on dancing in films, originally intended as an examination of the types of dance footage used in commercial films in the United States through five decades of growth. This volume will appeal to those with an interest in modern dance and its relationship to the big screen. Contents include: "Procedure", "Analysis and Classification", "Limitations", "Source of Film Material", "Dance Literature", "Film Literature", "Classification and Evaluation of Motion Picture Dance Forms", "Nature of Dance Art", "Two Main Purposes", "Social Dancing", "Period Forms", "Distinction Between Ethnic and Social Dancing", "Other Distinctions", "Criteria for Social Dancing", etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on dance.
