Editorial Policy

At Dance Media Group, we envision an increasingly dance-engaged public(s), equipped to appreciate the range of expressions of dance art and practice, valuing its cultural impact and recognizing its contribution to the richness of life in the land we call Canada.

The Dance Current publishes features, profiles, interviews, essays, columns, news, reviews, perspectives, reports and photo essays in a variety of lengths and formats both in print and online. Submissions from Canadian contributors take priority. Content focusses on dance in Canada and may from time to time present an international perspective with a strong Canadian angle. Submission does not guarantee publication.

The Dance Current aims to be inclusive of all dance and movement genres. We also aim toward pluralism in the writers we work with. The publication presents content –- from critical discourse to human interest stories – in articulate and accessible language in order to reach the broadest possible dance-interested readership and to make connections and build bridges between professionals, participants, amateurs and public(s).

The editor reserves the right to determine what material is published and to edit, as needed, all material submitted for publication. The editor also reserves the right to submit articles to an editorial advisor and/or the board of directors before publication. All submissions must be signed. (Names may be withheld upon request.) Articles that are libelous or defamatory will not be published. The opinions of the columnists are not necessarily those of The Dance Current.
