35 years of writing by dancers on contemporary dance, improvisation, & contact improvisation.

Contact Quarterly is the longest living independent journal written by dancers in the field of contemporary dance and improvisation. We have encouraged and stimulated articulation, dialogue, activity, and exploration within the field of dance and its performance since 1975.

Archiving emerging dance and improvisation forms, teaching methods, somatic movement practices, creative process and performance, CQ creates a singular record while playing an active role in supporting the bodily thinking that appears in and reaches beyond our pages.

With our new online publishing wing, subscribers can access additional insightful writings to what appear in our biannual print publications.
