a guide to outstanding dance resources for research and enrichment

Dance in the Metroplex

Dance events in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex are aggregated through "Go See DFW," compiled by the Dallas Morning News (if you get a subscription login, try another browser); also, public TV/radio station KERA presents its own "Art and Seek" calendar, though it no longer has a "dance" filter (try putting dance in the search box).

The North Texas Dance Council 's "Find Dance / Area Performances" link also lists event information, though upcoming events are only current for one month at a time. NTDC's Dance! North Texas quarterly publication also gives brief listings of events. Dance!... is found on the Council's website (current issue) and past issues are archived.

  Databases are specialized collections of online materials such as journal articles, book chapters, images/music/videos, maps, reports, statistics
