Images of choreographers, impresarios, and performers, including Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, Michael Jackson, Savion Glover, Balanchine, Baryshnikov, Beyonce, Isadora Duncan, Agnes deMille, and Lady Gaga, reveal how dance has captured the nation’s culture in motion. From the late 19th century to today, dance has drawn from the boundless commotion of cultures to represent the rhythm and beat of American life.
