Tomorrow night is Dance Film Lab at DTW, moderated by the wonderful Zach Morris of Third Rail Projects.

The lab is free and open to the public, though reservations are necessary.

Contact Zach Morris for more information and to RSVP.

Last but not least, yesterday marked the beginning of the week-long Dance Movie Blogathon! Marilyn Ferdinand over at Ferdy on Films has organized this fabulous web event in which dozens of dance and film bloggers (including yours truly) will be blogging about dance on the silver screen. Check out her blog during the week for links to all the great blog entries around the web. There are already a number of fabulous posts up including:

Jonathan Lapper at Cinema Styles goes Beyond Routine: Choreography and Dance and ponders the greatest dance number on film (or do you disagree?). Check out his great moving banner.

Glenn Kenny from Premiere.com offers some great screen caps from four films by Jean-Luc Godard.

Danielle Gordon
grapples with the definition of a dance movie at Lady Wakasa’s Journal and promises a week of posts that try to answer that question in the broadest way possible.

So, as you can see, there is a lot to see and do this week for the dance film maven! Unfortunately I have to finish up a major school assignment this week as well, so I will need to rely on my commentators more than usual to give me the run down on all the week’s events. Hope to hear from you soon!
