How to Document a Dance with Video

If I am not for myself, who will be for me?
If I am only for myself, what am I?
If not now, when?


We all enjoy looking at old movies and videos that show people dancing in bygone days. If we do a good job of documenting our current scene, we'll have the pleasure in the future of looking back at us as we once were, and we'll leave a record for the future. Here's an overview of what is involved.
