Sustain thINKingDANCE into 2021
"...we took a deep breath, regrouped, and kept going..."
All year our writers, editors, and board worked together to refine and carry out our mission. Last spring our publishing increased! We covered stories that gripped our writers with When Will We Embrace Again?, Town Hall Seeks Solutions to Dismantling White Supremacy, and a three-part series on Decolonizing Dance Writing, just to name a few. When our industry shut down in the spring, we took a deep breath, regrouped, and kept going.
We are publishing our first video series in collaboration with artist Kenwyn Samuel. With support from Leeway Foundation, Kenwyn is documenting Philadelphia artists who live with chronic illness and disabilities. We are recruiting a new cohort of writers who will start in the spring. Most importantly, we are recommitting to retaining our writers in the long term, which is why we reorganized our budget and increased writer pay by 66%.

"Having thINKingDANCE is an important addition to connecting this dance community. Whenever I am wondering what is going on or what I might have missed, I know where to look. It's all right there." - Joan Myers Brown, Founder, Philadanco
“At a time when journalistic standards everywhere are under pressure and assault, thINKingDANCE has built and sustained a collective journalistic practice that honors clarity, substance, curiosity, and imagination. tD raises the bar for arts writing, in Philadelphia and beyond.” - Germaine Ingram, Dancer/Choreographer and Arts Advocate
“I love the fact that thINKingDANCE writers, many of them practitioners themselves, understand the art of performance. I appreciate thINKingDANCE’s commitment to rigor, evidenced by the fact that every review has two editors. I’m very happy that tD has expanded their coverage to theaters! Considering that the whole enterprise is a labor of love (for sure not of money), I am impressed by the high quality of work this publication has already achieved!“ - Blanka Zizka, The Wilma Theater
