PBS Greatest Performances Site: A collection of performances ranging from pop to opera from PBS.
“Wicked the Musical:” Music from the Broadway sensation, “Wicked,” one of my favorites!

“Singin’ in the Rain” Trailer: This classic movie trailer gives you a fantastic glimpse into the talent and style of the era in which it was born.
Network Dance ballet videos: Great site with a variety of videos to choose from.
