Dance Dialogues

This Fall I participated in two digital archives projects, where I served on the metadata team. The first was an oral history archive for dance journalist, Barbara Newman, who had a collection of interviews from the 1970s to this past year, in which she spoke with dancers, choreographers and others affiliated in the dance community. The interviews were primary sources for Ms. Newman’s book, Grace Under Pressure. The website, Dance Dialogues, is a compilation of interviews from several of her books.

I participated on the metadata team, where we ensured that our classmates’ records were properly tagged with our selected schema. I also digitized interviews with Mark Morris and tagged and uploaded interviews with Katie Wade and Robert Denvers.
