"I have seen CQ moving in directions that embrace, envelop, and encompass a generous span of performance endeavor, and it’s a wonder that this little project, started decades ago by a group of outliers, perseveres. But it’s no longer “the little engine that could": it can, and does! CQ widens/
broadens its tracks while maintaining integrity of purpose, means, and product."
–Brenda Dixon-Gottschild, Professor Emerita of dance, Temple Univ.
"CQ is one of the few publications that brings us writing directly from the bones and sinews of dance, illuminating the practice as we do and understand it. Please support us as we continue to accompany you on your own dance journey, and as we re-envision our future. Your support is a critical part of the conversation.”

Contact Collaborations, Inc., is CQ’s nonprofit 501(c)(3). Your donation may be tax-deductible.
Please join us in celebrating yet another year of adaptation and transition.
Our now fully remote staff continues striding toward CQ’s transition from in-print publication to expansive online resource and archive. Much energy this year has been put to creating our last full online publication: CI Newsletter Special Edition celebrating the 50th anniversary of Contact Improvisation.
This wealth of materials is a heartening sign of the resilience and optimism of our community of dance artists and enthusiasts. And we welcome your donations—large and small—to keep our vehicle for the dancer's voice accessible to all in the years to come!
With gratitude and warm wishes from all of us at CQ,
Lisa, Lesley, Sofia, Leah, Karen, and Daniel
