Kallee Lins is the publisher of The Dance Current. A lifelong dancer from the small town of Castlegar, British Columbia, she completed her undergraduate degree in Political Science and Theatre at McGill University. She moved to Toronto in 2012 to meld her love of the performing arts, research, and writing. After completing an MA in Theatre and Performance Studies at York University and spending a number of years in the PhD in Dance Studies program, she worked as the Marketing and Communications Manager for the Dancer Transition Resource Centre. Later, she worked as the Manager, Membership and Community, at Imagine Canada - an advocacy and capacity building organization for the charitable sector.

Throughout her work in the cultural sector, she developed a passion for systems-level change and supporting the community through advocating for stronger arts policy. Outside of her work at The Dance Current, she sits on the board of directors for the Dance Umbrella of Ontario and Dusk Dances, and volunteers for the policy and research network Mass Culture.
