Contact Collaborations, Inc. has served the international dance and improvisation community since 1978. It was founded as a nonprofit tax-exempt organization in New York State by a group of dance artists and teachers centrally involved in the origins of Contact Improvisation and other improvisational dance forms. Our mission is to promote and document artistic and educational activities in dance through creating publications, videotapes, symposia, workshops, and performances tracking the emergence and development of improvisational dance and new dance forms. It includes:

CONTACT QUARTERLY dance and improvisation journal, a vehicle for moving ideas.

CONTACT EDITIONS produces, publishes, distributes, and promotes non-periodical new dance literature.

VIDEODA archives, distributes, and produces videotapes of Contact Improvisation and other improvisational and new dance forms.

PERFORMANCE & WORKSHOP/CONFERENCE PROJECT organizes symposia devoted to the investigation, dissemination, and performance of contemporary movement work.

CC, Inc. is also registered in Massachusetts. All donations are tax-deductible.
