DVD on Modern Dance History (Trailblazers of Modern Dance)

Do you know where I could get a copy of Trailblazers of Modern Dance? (a PBS Documentary) I can't access libraries as mine can't do interlibrary loan with the ones that have a copy. Help! I need it for teaching my students...

Dear Wess,

Have you tried worldcat.org?

I see they have registered several editions and formats of "Trailblazers of Modern Dance". As you are located in the U.S.A., you might very probably get to borrow one.

Here's the link for the page where I found it:

Page for "Trailblazers of modern dance" at worldcat.org

If you don't get to borrow a copy through their website, you might also consider searching for separate videos of those figures of modern dance history. You can tell the story yourself to your students and then show them different parts of the selection of videos you make.

You might find that this option offers you other didactic alternatives...

I hope this helps.

Warm regards,
