Somebody just gave me a shower radio. Thanks a lot. Do you really want music in the shower? I guess there's no better place to dance than a slick surface next to a glass door.-Jerry Seinfeld

Irene and Vernon Castle (Actor), Leon James (Actor), Carol Teten (Director) - America Dances 1897-1948 A Collectors Edition of Social Dance in Film - Dance Performance DVD - America Dances - 1897 through's a collector's edition of social dance on film...over 50 historical dance film clips from the first part of the 20th century...we get a record of our changing dance trends... I have discovered a wonderful dance company out West directed by one Carol Teten. The group has turned out a marvelous series of instructional videos to enable you to learn the basic steps of dances from the Renaissance up to the middle of the last century, and they are a joy to watch. But I am here concerned with a DVD that Teten has put together called America Dances. 1897-1948 (no catalogue number). You have the option of playing the whole DVD straight through, which I advise on first viewing, or of going into the menu and watching only those single episodes, which educators will want to do. You see, this is a wonderful teaching tool for instructors of dance, music, American history and even psychology. All in all, Teten did an amazing job in collating all of this material... All she wants is that we should share in her passion for the dance and its history. In that, she certainly has succeeded. America Dances belongs in a category of its own: archival footage showing the evolution of dance within popular culture...not merely of historic interest, the footloose performances of the Charleston and other antique-fad dances gathered here are invariably more exciting than the watered down versions devised by contemporary choreographers for Broadway, TV or the movies. The America Dances DVD presents original film clips of Americans dancing iconic, vintage dances. Dancetime Publications has culled fascinating, incredible footage from multiple archives and libraries to create this astounding collection. A collectible treasure, America Dances. is a fascinating, original-source record of pivotal dance moments reflecting changing dance trends, expertise, and taste. A dance chronicle of our culture, this retrospective spans the panorama from average Americans dancing in newsreels to top quality performers who left a legacy of their moves across the ballroom floor. These film archives show rare footage of the African American and Latin dance heritage. More than 60 film clips from silent films, newsreels, instructional films, and feature films comprise this 75 minute video.
