Kate Cornell was recently appointed the new director of the Society for Canadian Dance Studies/La Société des études canadiennes en danse (SCDS/SECD). Members of the Society met in Toronto on June 23rd to discuss the future of the organization after founder/director Amy Bowring announced her decision to step down from her decade-long leadership role. Bowring founded the Society in 2000 to support and publish Canadian dance research. The Society, via its website, provides resources to members and publishes scholarly articles about dance in Canada, while also engaging in collaborative dance literacy projects and hosting national conferences. At the same meeting, members of the society decided that the next SCDS/SECD conference will be set to coincide with the Festival TransAmériques 2012 in Montréal. test
