The Merce Cunningham Dance Studio is one of the most celebrated in the United States. Even though Merce Cunningham passed away in 2009, this collection of free webcasts remains a fine resource for people with an interest in dance. Visitors to the site can go behind the scenes at the studio to see Merce teach advanced technique class and conduct rehearsals. These videos were taken as part of a partnership between the Cunningham Dance Foundation and New York University's Moving Image Archiving and Preservation program. Currently, there are eleven episodes on the site available for general viewing. They include "The Fundamentals" and "Dancing for Merce". Along with watching these episodes, visitors can also learn about the studio, their workshops, and their performance schedule.
