This year the country is celebrating the bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth.Take a 3-minute vacation by watching this snippet ofA Serenade/The Proposition, a commemorative dance by the New York City-based nonprofit Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company (it starts a little slow but hang in there). Founder and artistic director Bill T. Jones choreographed the piece, the company says, by using Lincoln's own words and those of his contemporaries to honor the slain president's legacy with "a rumination on the nature of history."
