Dance Coverage and Conversation
thINKingDANCE connects audiences, dance artists, and presenters through coverage and conversation. We publish more articles on dance in Philadelphia than any other outlet, and we cover more artists and performances as well. Through a partnership with Theatre Philadelphia, we have extended our coverage into the margins between theater and dance. In partnership with Mighty Writers, we are bringing movement and dance writing exercises to children.
We depend on support from you, our readers, and the arts community, to pay our writers, editors, and staff. On November 12, dozens of people joined us for choreoBASH, our seventh birthday dance party. We raised just over $3,000 from admissions, donations, and a raffle with over 20 prizes. Please make a donation to help us deliver excellence in dance writing.
