We enjoy dance here at Smile Politely, it is frequently covered in our Arts section these days. There are plenty of stories to tell from within Department of Dance, and one story was recently told by New York Times. The article highlights the work of Professor Tere O’Connor, “What Does ‘Post-Emerging’ Look Like in Today’s Dance Landscape?, talking with him about his experience in the dance world, calling him “contemporary dance trailblazer”. Check out more on his work at his website.

Interested in writing for our Arts section? Let us know. We’re looking to bring on some more for the section and we’d love to discuss how you can contribute to the magazine.
