Brittany Duggan made the connection between dance and journalism during her first year at York University in 2005. She volunteered as The Dance Current’s first intern and soaked up years of mentorship from the many brilliant women who have graced this magazine’s masthead. Her involvement in Canada’s professional dance community drove her desire to expand her storytelling skills and she completed the University of British Columbia’s Graduate School of Journalism last year. Duggan is currently a Vancouver-based freelance journalist and podcast producer.

She was The Dance Current’s Online Editor from June 2015 through December 2016, Managing Editor from 2014 through 2015, Production and Office Manager 2011 through 2013 and has been involved with the organization through various internships and as a writer since 2005.

Duggan graduated from York University’s BFA Program in Dance in 2009 and has since collaborated with a number of independent dance artists including Kate Hilliard, Susan Cash, Tracey Norman, Susan Kendal, Krista Posyniak, Jenny-Anne McCowan and Aviva Fleising. Choreographic credits include she.d (2014), a solo with cellist Kailyn Winick, works for the McMaster University Dance Company, Scienceography (2011) for Toronto’s Fringe Festival, Mayfly (2011) for The Creative Republic and mountain girl (2010).
