SeeingDance is a not-for-profit website that aims to bring you the best in news, reviews and features about dance and associated movement arts. We love dance! Of course we hope to educate and inform, but we also want to entertain, and maybe even spark debate about this, the most wonderful of art forms.
Besides here at SeeingDance.com, you can keep up with us on Facebook and Twitter, and keep in touch by subscribing (we promise not to swamp you with messages!).
If you wish to contribute to SeeingDance, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
