• Musical – The musical film is a film genre in which songs sung by the characters are interwoven into the narrative,
                    sometimes accompanied by dancing. The songs usually advance the plot or develop the film's characters,

                    "production numbers".

• Dance – A dance film is a film in which dance is used to reveal the central themes of the film, whether these themes
                 be connected to narrative or story, states of being, or more experimental and formal concerns. In such films,
                 the creation of choreography typically exists only in film or video.
