Institute for Dance Studies

The Institute for Dance Studies (IDS)  is a research community hosted within the Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies. Through meetings, events, practice-based research and resource sharing we are a platform of support for scholars, students, dance related professionals and people who dance in all ways and aspects of life. It is our mandate to work towards the advancement of the discipline and to encourage re-imaginings of the contours of dance studies within the academy and to advocate for the value of dance beyond performance.
