Welcome to The Dancer-Citizen, an online, open-access, peer-reviewed scholarly journal exploring the work of socially engaged dance artists.

This endeavor grows out of our belief in the role of the artist as public intellectual, our curiosity about how dancers observe, explain and comment on the world, and an understanding of the obligation we hold to seek and develop solutions for the challenges facing the communities in which we live and work. We recognize that our diverse roles, experiences, and perspectives as practitioners constitute a unique body of knowledge in the world.

The Dancer-Citizen Issues 1-6 are now available.

Those interested in submitting work in the future should visit the submissions page. For more information, please email: info@dancercitizen.org. The Dancer-Citizen is a project of Evolve Dance Inc.
