In Dance has shifted to a quarterly, digital publication, in response to the virtual time we find ourselves in. Like you, we are sitting with the unknowns of this time, and Dancers’ Group is continuously working to find additional ways to amplify Bay Area Dance.

ABOUT

The Bay Area’s publication dedicated to dance, In Dance, is known for its engaging interviews with local and visiting artists, articles that explore everything from how to tour your work abroad to activism in art, and an extensive list of Bay Area dance activities.

Have an idea for a story?

For articles about a performance or other timed event(s), we need to receive details at least three (3) months in advance of the event.

Dancers’ Group welcomes ideas for articles at any time, be they related to production, community, performance, health, or any other issue that is of interest to the dance community. Proposals are invited both from writers wishing to cover an event or issue and community members who would like to see a particular topic addressed.
