Back to Digital Collections A-Z
The University of Utah Dance Theses Collection in the Audio Visual Archives consists of 64 videorecordings, ranging from 1967 to 2001, of graduate thesis concerts presented by MFA candidates from the Departments of Ballet and of Modern Dance. These departments are now separate, but were formerly a single combined department. The portion of this collection that is presented online consists of digitized VHS and UMatic tapes and several have deteriorated due to age and “sticky shed syndrome,” which affects magnetic tapes. The quality of the digitized version of these tapes has been greatly affected by this deterioration, demonstrating the need for greater preservation and digitization of audiovisual materials.
