Dance – the secret library


If you want to watch a Dance video or see interviews with choreographers then Dance in Video is for you.  There are over 700 videos available.  Interviews with choreographers can also be viewed with the text alongside – handy for using quotes.

You can use it like Youtube to Create Playlists of your favourites – indeed, once you’ve created a Playlist you can add Youtube clips, weblinks, music, images, even links to full text articles if you wish.

Create clips of just the section of video you want to use; embed the clips into your assignments, your presentations – or into Blackboard.
