From Movement to Dance: People, Creatures, Things

Original Performance on December 1, 1967


1967 – Maida created this 16mm film as part of her educational engagement with dance for children. Maida was an active participant in the inauguration of the U.S.A. national Artist-in-Schools initiative that brought artists into public schools for curriculum development with teachers, principals, and children.  In this film, Maida improvises ideas that might appeal to children. The film was produced and distributed by Mid-Atlantic Educational Institute in West Chester, Pennsylvania. Central Atlantic Regional Educational Laboratory correspondence is in the files.

The presentation of the film was the result of the 16 mm transfer to a quick time movie file.  The film is charming and simplistic.

Regrettably there is an audio hum that is not possible to remove.
