Upping the ante on dance coverage and conversation

PHILADELPHIA, PA   |  thinkingdance.net

Mission

thINKingDANCE is a collective of independent writers who produce media about dance. Founded in 2011, we publish a digital journal focused on the Philadelphia area. Our mission is to: Meaningfully contribute to the creative ecosystem by marking the presence of dance and movement-based arts; Innovate and foster the practice of dance writing in traditional and experimental forms; Work to dismantle dance criticism's status as a gatekeeper by engaging performing artists and writers who have historically been sidelined. We pursue these goals by training together through peer-critique sessions, with guest educators, and a two-tiered editing process. thINKingDANCE is a place where ideas thrive, and where editors and writers engage one another in transformative dialogue.
