Get set. Film. Muhlenberg College, host of the 2011 American College Dance Festival Association's Northeast Conference, puts a twist on the usual ACDFA proceedings with the first-ever 48-Hour Video Dance Challenge. Using a list of designated movements and locations, contestants will have two days--amid a packed schedule of master classes and adjudicated concerts--to make a two-minute video-dance using their own equipment. (Camera phones and laptop cameras are fair game.) The challenge is part of the northeast conference's broader focus on dance and film this year, which includes workshops, screenings, and an adjudicated Dance on Camera showing. Setting a fearless tone for the weekend, Urban Bush Women, artists-in-residence at Muhlenberg, open the festival with a performance on March 9 (see "A Female Force," p. 26). See www.acdfa.org/index.
