Dance

Videos have always relied upon dance: from girl groups performing choreographed routines, to the narrative-driven performances in Michael Jackson's videos, and the predatory movements of Christopher Walken in Weapon of Choice. Where the skill of dancers was once presented in long shots so they could be admired without distortion; computer augmentation and manipulation have advanced the possibilities of human movement and skill. This section explores the ways in which dance videos have adapted for new audiences and changing interpretations of the word 'dance'.
