    Summary:

    The Dance Notation Collection consists of scenarios, scores in codified dance notation, and descriptions of dance dating from 1893 to 1981, many of which originated from copyright deposits submitted to the U.S. Copyright Office to register rights for choreography. Most of these scores are recorded in Labanotation, the system of dance notation that Rudolf von Laban (1879–1958) developed. George Balanchine, Doris Humphrey, Kurt Jooss, Léonide Massine, and Antony Tudor are among the distinguished choreographers whose works are represented in this collection.
