Dance Studies Association
The Dance Studies Association (DSA) is an international organization of dance scholars, educators, and artists that aims to strengthen the visibility and increase the reach of dance as embodied practice, creative endeavor and intellectual discipline. Formed in 2017, as the merged entity of the Congress on Research in Dance (CORD) and the Society of Dance History Scholars (SDHS), DSA is both grounded in and extends the work of those two organizations. DSA publishes Dance Research Journal (DRJ) (Cambridge University Press), Conversations Across the Field of Dance Studies (Michigan Publishing e-platform), and Studies in Dance: Theories and Practices book series (University of Michigan Press). Its annual scholarly conference is open to members and nonmembers.
