The Art of American Dance is a 2016-17 exhibit at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, which says: "The Art of American Dance examines dance-inspired paintings, prints, sculptures, and photographs from the 1830s to the recent past -- from dance in Native American cultures to ballroom dancing, to Jitterbug, swing, modern dance, and others. Exploring the variety of ways Americans embrace dance as part of everyday life, as well as the diverse forms of professional dance, including burlesque, flamenco, and classical ballet, the exhibition highlights the central place dance has held in American culture and in the imagination of American artists."
