A Bit About Us

thINKingDANCE is a collective of independent writers based in the Philadelphia area. Founded in 2011, we produce a digital journal about dance in its broadest sense. We foster the practice of dance writing; build an archive of movement-based art; and work to dismantle gatekeeping in dance criticism. We pursue these goals by developing our writing through peer-critique sessions, workshops with guest educators, and a uniquely rigorous two-tiered editing process. thINKingDANCE is a place where ideas thrive; where editors, writers, and readers engage one another in transformative dialogue; and where we imagine a more vibrant and just dance media landscape. Read more.
