  • America's Irreplacable Dance Treasures: The First 100
    http://www.danceheritage.org/treasures.html
    The DHC has converted the exhibition to a permanent online resource which provides accessible scholarly writing, still and moving images, and research guides for each subject. One hundred new essays of 1,000-2,000 words have been commissioned from an array of dance scholars, academics, critics, advanced students, dancers and choreographers. Each Treasure has an individual page, with the introductions written by scholars Norton Owen and Lynn Garafola for the traveling exhibition, images and video clips, and links to the new essays and resources for further research. The exhibition is intended as an educational resource to improve dance literacy, as a tribute to the achievements and legacy of American dance, and as a sampling of the best in dance history and critical writing.
