CQ Dance Map Directory online (Next publishing date: April 15, 2020)

Contact Quarterly’s Dance Map Directory is the go-to place for dance artists, students, and teachers to find academic and independent programs and resources worldwide that focus on contemporary dance, improvisation, and somatic approaches to training and performance. After 45 years of publishing the dancer's voice, our global readership includes libraries, festivals, retreats, and dance centers. With over 11,000 pageviews per month, here is the place to spread the word about your event, organization, product, or service! We welcome you to our pages.

With the publication of CQ Vol. 45.1 Winter/Spring 2020 (the final issue of Contact Quarterly as a print periodical), we are moving our editorial content to our expanding year-round online publication—CQ Unbound. Our now online-only Dance Map Directory will continue to offer unique advertising opportunities at new, decreased prices, while we prepare to offer online display ads later in 2020. Please stay tuned for further developments!
