CONTEMPORARY DANCE QUESTIONS
ABOUT THEORY AND HISTORY
Some of the dance questions about theory and/or history I receive are from visitors that haven’t read our main pages about these subjects:
- Dance terms. Definition of contemporary dance and other dance words
- Dance theory
- Contemporary dance history
- Modern dance history
- Ballet history
- General concert dance history
If you haven’t read those pages, you might ask something that has already been answered within our website. Please, make sure of at least browsing over them before asking a new question here.
If you read those pages and still have a question, you can also follow a very simple process before asking. Please have a look at our right column, where you will find a Google search box. It is located near the top, just below the post for the e-book of contemporary dance history.
This search box works only within contemporary-dance.org (our website), and not within the rest of the Web. Just write some of the words that make your question, for example WHAT IS CONTEMPORARY DANCE?, and then click the search button. A new page will open with several results. Now you can read about what you are looking for. It is very possible that you will find the answer to your query.
If after reading the above information you still have a question, please feel free to ask. The only thing I ask in exchange is that you leave me your e-mail address. I will not use it to send you ads or spam. The reason for this is that I have too many submissions. Some of them are about already asked questions, some are out of topic, some need that I contact the submitter, some don’t. I need your e-mails to handle all this questions better, otherwise this is an endless work. So, I will not answer to you if you don’t leave your e-mail address, whether in the notification options or within your message.

By providing your e-mail you will also instantly know when my answer, or comments from other visitors, have been posted.
Feel free to ask as many questions as you like, but only one question per submission.
Just remember that this is a website about contemporary dance. If you ask a question about another type of dance, it might not be included on this page or take much longer to be answered.
And… this is the section for contemporary dance questions about theory and history. But don’t worry if you send a question about another category by mistake.
