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.
