DancePhilosophers Google Group

This is a professional networking email listserv that I moderate for those who are interested in the philosophy of dance, broadly construed. Currently we have members in such fields as dance performance and choreography, philosophy of art and performance, dance studies, dance education, dance history, performance and theater studies, movement theory, kinaesthetics and law, among others. The purpose of the group is to share information pertaining to new publications, calls for proposals, research topics and any other areas of interest related to dance philosophy and of interest to the group.

If you would like to join the group please go to and request membership. Please also add a note telling me what your interest is in dance philosophy and how you heard of this group.
