Scope and content: Programs of dance performances between 1954 and 1983, primarily in Nashville, Tenn., many occuring at the Ryman Auditorium. Many programs are from nationally or internationally acclaimed dance companies such as The Ballet Theatre, American Ballet Theatre, Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, the National Ballet of Canada, or are from performances by widely known individual dancers and professionals, such as Nureyev, Dame Margot Fontaine, choreographer George Balanchine, and directors Lucia Chase and Oliver Smith, among others. In some instances a program was produced to be used throughout a troupe's tour, and will not state the exact date or location of a performance, although it is believed that many of these also took place in Nashville.
