Product Description

Magicians Penn & Teller host BEHIND THE SCENES, the acclaimed, award-winning PBS series that features interviews with today's leading artists. Behind the Scenes brings the magic--and the mystery--of artistic creation to video by going behind the scenes to discover the creative process.
David Parsons, a choreographer for the American Ballet Theatre and former dancer for the Paul Taylor Dance Company, shows how dances can begin with the simplest everyday movements. JoAnn Falletta, one of America's most celebrated young conductors, shows how a symphony orchestra uses layers of sound to create music. Jazz composer and pianist Allen Toussaint, with the help of the legendary Bobby McFerrin, demonstrates the art of musical composition by writing a melody at the piano and then recording it in a studio. Max Roach, the legendary jazz percussionist and composer, brings the accent to music, using layered and funky rhythms to help listeners feel the beat.

I show this to my Dance Appreciation classes at the college where I teach. It's a very good teaching tool. It makes my students think a lot about choreography.

This might have been alright when it came out, but I really don't think kids today would be able to relate to it.
