The Dance Current brings together 15 years of content with launch of new website

The Dance Current magazine is marking Canada's National Dance Week by launching a brand new website which, along with regular new content, is bringing together a 10-year archive of exclusively digital content and a print collection of over 140 back issues. 
"We invite professionals, practitioners, dance students and fans to visit  throughout the week and learn something new about dance in your country,” says executive director, publisher and founding editor Megan Andrews.
By moving to one, integrated platform, The Dance Current makes possible public access to dance in Canada through event listings, videos, columns, features, interviews, news and reviews. 
The magazine has been published by Dance Media Group/Groupe Danse Média since 1998. The editor has been Kathleen Smith since 2011.
"While fully bilingual publication is beyond our resources," the magazine says in a release, "we are committed to inclusive coverage of the country’s diverse regions. Québec dance artists have appeared frequently in the magazine and we provide French summaries of our feature print articles and selected full French translation where possible. Through our projects and programs, The Dance Current contributes to a culture of literacy, critical insight and collective memory about dance in Canada both within and beyond the milieu."
The new website was developed by Toronto company Razorbraille Creative, Inc. and funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
