The Dance Enthusiast Celebrates Black Choreographers:
"Dance is my medicine ... Dance is the fist with which I fight the sickening ignorance of prejudice. Instead of growing twisted like a gnarled tree inside myself, I am able to dance out my anger and frustration." Pearl Primus
The Dance Enthusiast : leading an exuberant revolution in dance communication
The Dance Enthusiast is a vibrant, engaging digital magazine and arts service organization. Our mission is threefold: to serve the dance community by sharing its stories and news; to offer audiences unique access to the compelling dance companies and moving artists of New York City and the world; and to invite audiences, artists, and writers into a conversation about dance. Our new media work, as well as our offline initiatives illuminate, educate and inspire audiences to understand the deep value inherent in dance. The Dance Enthusiast's founding editor-in-chief, Christine Jowers, with her ever growing team of dance journalists, is devoted to creating and nurturing dance enthusiasts - people passionate about dance, its artists, and the world we share.
Our Guiding Values:
*We believe in the power and necessity of dance.
*We respect moving artists and support their work.
*We believe that communication about dance beyond the stage will keep this art form vital.
*We seek to expand the definition and scope of dance journalism beyond reviews and critiques.
*We are dedicated to exploring new ways of communicating about dance on the world wide web and off.
*We stress our roles as educators, advocates, and communicators.
*We encourage audience engagement: conversation and participation.
