About thINKingDANCEthINKingDANCE’s diverse team of twenty-one people interested in writing and thinking about dance was selected through a competitive admission process and includes a principal at Pennsylvania Ballet, prominent dance educators, currently publishing dance writers, and relative novices at writing who are knowledgeable about dance. Together we have provided much-needed coverage for less-mainstream events that have been under-the-radar because of the recent decline in newspaper arts coverage. We have also offered alternative voices in covering higher-profile groups. Moving into year two we are continuing to work on our strategies for sustainability, on training a new cohort of writers, and on connecting to the community through our new initiative, the Philly Performance Club.
Beginning year two, we will be publishing an average of eight pieces of writing per month in formats including reviews, features, interviews, ‘think pieces’ and, hopefully, as-yet-undiscovered forms. Have something in mind you’d like to see? Let us know.
