The Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company has been awarded $50,800 by the National Endowment for the Arts, to produce an educational video titled "Teaching Advanced Dance Improvisation."

This arts in education special project grant is the second educational video award Ririe-Woodbury has received from the NEA, and the largest single grant in the company's history. Their first project, "Teaching Beginning Dance Improvisation," was completed in 1989 in collaboration with award-winning video producer and director Arthur Pembleton. Two one-hour videotapes and accompanying workbook resulted, which are being sold throughout the country and abroad, as purchase orders steadily accelerate."Teaching Advanced Dance Improvisation" will include the final editing and production of four videotapes, and an accompanying 80-page teacher workbook. More than 80 hours of raw video footage have already been taped for the new project, which is scheduled to be available in 1993.
