What is a dance blogger?

A dance blogger is someone who blogs about dance.  A dance blogger may be a choreographer, dancer, dance teacher, dance student, dance scholar, dance critic, dance notator, dance presenter, dance observer – or any combination of the above.  If we left anyone out in our description, please let us know!

What is DanceBloggers.com?

DanceBloggers.com is a central hub for people who blog about dance in English. The site will help dance bloggers connect and follow the dance blogosphere; it will also allow people interested in dance and blogging to learn more about the field.

How does Dance Bloggers operate?

This site will aggregate feeds from participating dance blogs. The beginnings of each participating blog’s posts will automatically be displayed on the main page; when someone clicks on a post to read more, he or she will get some more of the article and links to other related articles. Each post will link to the original blog (while also leaving the link structure intact).  All participating blogs will have links in the “Contributors” section of our sidebar
