We are an online organization. We are in solidarity with all those impacted by COVID, including the many artists, organizations and institutions whose livelihoods are suffering. We are grateful for the speedy response of some brilliant folks who have already gathered a ton of information to support artists through these chaotic and uncertain times, including how to find and apply for emergency funds, resources to shift your movement or teaching practice online, and resources for anti-racist and inclusive practices to support communities through this pandemic. You can find them through the links below, which will be updated regularly. If you have information you would like to share, please email

In support and unity,

Julie B. Johnson, on behalf of the Editors

Welcome to The Dancer-Citizen, an online, open-access, peer-reviewed scholarly journal exploring the work of socially engaged dance artists.

This endeavor grows out of our belief in the role of the artist as public intellectual, our curiosity about how dancers observe, explain and comment on the world, and an understanding of the obligation we hold to seek and develop solutions for the challenges facing the communities in which we live and work. We recognize that our diverse roles, experiences, and perspectives as practitioners constitute a unique body of knowledge in the world.

Issues 1-9 are now available. Please visit Submissions for more details on how to submit your work for Issue 10.
