Invitation to the Dance: An Explanation

This is a brief explanation of the animation process used in Gene Kelly’s Invitation to the Dance (1956), an “anthology film” consisting of three different stories. There is no dialogue in the film; all narratives are told only through dance and mime. Despite its failure at the box office, Invitation to the Dance won the “Golden Bear Award” for Best Film at the 6th Berlin International Film Festival.

I discovered this video on Cartoonz for U.
