For dance-related keyword searches, type in the following keyword phrase:

danc* AND your topic

Replace the words  your topic  with other topics you want included, such as:

  • nutrition, injury, community, etc.
  • New York, Utah, Tokyo, Russia, etc.
  • jazz, improvisation, Limon, etc.

To add more than one topic, connect additional terms with the word AND. (Using more terms will retrieve fewer―but more specific―results.)

danc* AND Humphrey AND technique

To search synonyms or related terms enclose them in parentheses and connect with OR.

danc* AND (nutrition OR food)

 Once you find an item that fits your topic, look at the Subject links in the full catalog record.  Click on a Subject link to find other items with related subject content.
