Hortense Kooluris Collection

Video donated by Kirby Kooluris. "An Introduction to Duncan Dances" features Hortense Kooluris and her students at the Philadelphia Dance Academy. The film is a result of a contract between the University of Pennsylvania and the U.S. Department of Education, directed by Nadia Nahumck, and filmed at Bryn Mawr. This is followed by a February 1978 dress rehearsal for a performance at the Philadelphia College of Performing Arts, featuring Hortense Kooluris and Julia Levien. Lori Bellilove and Adrienne Ramm are sololists.
