Film and dance have long held a natural affinity. Film captures movement, and dance is the most elemental form of human movement: Some of the earliest Edison and Lumiere Brothers film reels show dancers—they were among the first images ever captured by the new medium—and many of the most memorable images from popular films remained dance-related throughout the 20th century.

Exploring this connection and especially the way dancers, choreographers, and film-makers have sought to advance and play with this interrelationship in the past few years will be the subject of “Dance for Reel: An Evening of Dance on Camera” this Thursday night at Emory. The free event will offer a collection of five short films from the Dance Films Association in New York, hosted by Emory alum and local dancer and choreographer Blake Beckham.

“Dance for Reel” takes place Thursday, October 14, at 8 pm at Emory University's Performing Arts Studio, 1804 North Decatur Road. The event is free and open to the public.
