Article by Diana Morse (with photos) provides a look at screendance, a relatively new art form that captures dance on film, and the DeSales Screendance Festival. She includes commentary by Timothy Cowart, director of the dance program at the University, who emphasizes that dance on film gives you a different perspective from live performance. "These films don't feature dance as part of a story, like a Broadway musical," says Cowart. "The story is the dance." The Screendance Festival at DeSales featured 11 contemporary films from 10 countries and ranged from three-minute shorts to 23-minute full-piece works. Cowart believes the time is right to offer courses on dance and media. Next year, he and Scott Paul, director of the DeSales TV / Film Program, will teach "Dance on Camera."
