Lee Slinger, Ph.D., is a Toronto-based researcher, teacher and writer. Her academic interests are in how people use the past to construct identities in the present and ideas of ownership about that knowledge.

More recently, she has taught art history and writing skills at OCAD University and Ryerson University and done free-lance writing and copy editing. Her love of dance has always been a part of her life. Since attending L’École supérieure de ballet du Québec in Montréal, she has participated in a variety of recreational classes, studied dance at York and become a devoted audience member. She has been editor at The Dance Current since 2015.

Dominique Dumais By Lee Slinger
