A vivid Baroque dance documentary produced by Dancetime Publications in association with Catherine Turocy, the renowned Artistic Director of The New York Baroque Dance Company. The DVD provides a rare look at the artistic process in re-creating dance and dance-theater, from studio to stage. Included, there is information about Baroque music, fencing, mask work, notation, costumes, and the inner life of dance performers working in this dance style. BAROQUE DANCE UNMASKED: Workshop to Performance features brilliant performance excerpts which reveal the most important theatrical dance styles of the 18th century: the danse heroique, the demi-caractère, and the comic/grotesque style. The dancers are in period costumes and perform with an original instrument ensemble, Concert Royal .
Catherine Turocy's Baroque workshop immerses her students in the culture of the 18th Century as they learn dance techniques. The students feel the influence of life style, wardrobe and courtly manner as well as fencing, masks and castanets on the development of dance movements accompanied by wonderful music --Mary Lyons

Baroque Dance Unmasked: Workshop to Performance is a DVD documentary that lives up to its title by taking the viewer on an inside tour of Catherine Turocy's Baroque Ballet Workshop, where 18th century dance practices are preserved and taught. Every step of the process from studio to stage is revealed, as Turocy explains her process for reviving and preserving the elegance of period dance. Performance excerpts with period costuming and music courtesy of Concert Royal enhance this singularly exceptional contribution to dance DVD libraries. 48 min.
