in honor of Nancy Stark Smith
"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.”
–Lesley Farlow, dance artist and movement educator, CQ Advisory Board

Dear Readers & Friends,
We greet you with hopes that you and loved ones are staying safe and finding inspiration during this time of global transformation.
With the recent passing of cofounder and coeditor, Nancy Stark Smith, and the economic freefall unleashed by Covid-19, CQ is in a moment of accelerated change. The time has come to make our 45 year collection of dance thinking fully accessible online for current and future generations of dancers. We can imagine no better way to honor Nancy's legacy than by completing what she was working toward in the last year of her life.
For CQ's Resource-Archive Site to be launched and completed within the next year, we need your participation. As the Covid-19 crisis has affected us all—individually and collectively—your generosity continues to be our engine and foundation.
In early October, we announced a goal to raise $38,000 by year end. Your response to our call has been deeply encouraging, and we have $27,400 left to raise by January 1st.
Your donation of any amount within your means will collectively bring
CQ's gift to the future to life.
Our deepest gratitude to the many of you who've donated so far to this culminating project in honor of cofounder Nancy Stark Smith.
Thank you for carrying CQ into the future and please spread the word.
With gratitude and warmest wishes,
Lisa Nelson, Lesley Farlow, and all at CQ
