A Brief History of Dance in Film

Video of the Day

Dance and cinema have a long history together, dating all the way back to the silent era when movies relied on expressive physical performances by the actors to help tell a story. The following video showcases some of the best footwork ever seen on the big screen.

An L.A. based video essayist who goes by the name BREADSWORD, created this montage which samples clips over three-hundred-and-sixty films to show a brief history of dance in movies. The ten-minute montage spans one-hundred-and-twenty-five years of cinema and is set to the song that plays at the end of Cloud Atlas and composed by Tom Tykwer, Johnny Klimek, Reinhold Heil, and Gene Pritsker.
