  • He Makes Me Feel Like Dancin’

    1983. USA. Directed by Emile Adolino. With Jacques d’Amboise, Kevin Kline. With cinematographic and editing styles that emulate its kinetic subject, this documentary follows dancer d’Amboise as he trains performers for the National Dance Institute’s “Event of the Year,” a production of Fat City at Madison Square Garden that features Kline, amateur dancers from the NYPD, and 1,000 kids. D’Amboise founded the institute in 1976 to help public school children discover the arts through dance, and this film encapsulates the positive (and at times fanatical) influence of show business on the young aspiring dancers. 48 min.

  • Flamenco at 5:15

    1983. Canada. Directed by Cynthia Scott. Supported by the National Film Board of Canada, Scott had set out to document the evolution of a ballet dancer. While doing research at the National Ballet School of Canada, she became enthralled with the lively 5:15 p.m. class led by flamenco teachers Susan and Antonio Robledo, and soon changed the focus of her film. This documentary short captures the infectious energy of dance and the inspirational effect of enthusiastic instructors. 29 min.
