Invitation to the dance by Gene Kelly( Visual )

6 editions published between 1956 and 2012 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gene Kelly brings his remarkable talents as star, director and choreographer to this glittering gala of music, dance and pantomime--and the result is a lush, one-of-a-kind musical flight of fancy. In Circus, a clown (Kelly) in a small carnival troupe is hopelessly in love with the show's high-wire walker. Ring around the rosy is a satiric tale about a bracelet which travels from the wrist of one fickle lover to another. Sinbad the sailor blends live action and animation as Kelly dances his way into an Arabian nights world after rubbing Aladdin's lamp"--Container

Gil Roman y el Béjart Ballet Lausanne : el esfuerzo y el animo( Visual )

2 editions published in 2009 in French and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The choreographer Maurice Bejart was one of the most brilliant artists of the 20th century. He revolutionized the art of dance and excited thousands of spectators throughout the world, many of them indifferent to ballet until then. In order to continue and preserve his work and ballets, Bejart named the French dancer Gil Roman, a member of his company since 1979, as his successor. Roman is well aware of the dauntingly large shoes he's expected to fill. In this film, we see how Roman's own choreography, as well as leadership, must prove worthy to secure the future of a befoved institution hitherto unimaginable without its founder's active guidance. Daringly, Roman chooses to prove his mettle by staging BBL's first-ever program without any Bejart works. We glimpse rehearsals, and dancers past and present are interviewed. Excerpts of the new dances, look exciting, as does the climactic gala. Bejart himself is heard on archival tape and seen in stills, but the focus here is on the present magnificent company"--Container
