 A recommended performance even after all these ye March 3, 2013 By Philemon W J. (Annandale, VA) See All My Reviews "Superb dancing for the day and not bad by the standards of today. The same may be said of the camera work. The production of an affordable zoom lens has spoiled most of us. Back to the dancing and production--yes it is wonderful and still worth viewing."
