Background:
"Dance for Camera" was the earliest series created by the Dance Workshop, which was coordinated at the time by Nancy Mason. The series was broadcast in 1976. Carmen De Lavallade, a former dancer with Lester Horton, John Butler and others, recorded introductions for the shows. The series appears to have been broadcast nationally. Some of the works were rebroadcast as part of the "Frames of Reference" series.

Scope:
Includes videos of the completed works (in various formats), paper documentation about the creation of specific works and about the series in general, and photographic images documenting the individual works and the promotion of the series.
