Intellect is pleased to announce that our unique series, Intellect China Library, has established an initial partnership with the Journal of Beijing Dance Academy.

Beijing Dance Academy is a full-time institution of higher learning with commitment to developing excellent professional dancers, choreographers and dance researchers. Founded in 1954, the former Beijing Dance School was the first professional dance school ever established since the founding of People’s Republic of China. Beijing Dance Academy of officially established in 1978, it provides BA and MA degrees and has become the only institution of higher learning for professional dance education in China, as well as the largest prestigious dance school with comprehensive concentrations in the world. In recent years, BDA is committed to develop its research profile specialising in dance, the Journal of Beijing Dance Academy is one of such outcomes. The Academy is also actively engaging with international collaboration.

“Encouraging a partnership with the Journal of BDA is a natural move for the Intellect China Library Series”, says series editor Dr Hiu Man Chan, “as it matches perfectly with Intellect’s exiting publishing portfolio”. The ICL Series looks forward to working with colleagues at Beijing Dance Academy to help bringing ideas around dance in China to the global community.

The Intellect China Library is a series of new English translations of the latest scholarship in Chinese that have not previously been available. Subjects covered include visual arts, performing arts, popular culture, media and the broader creative industries. The series aims to foster intellectual debate and to promote closer cross-cultural knowledge exchange by introducing unique Chinese scholarship and ideas to our readers.


Intellect is very excited to see what this partnership brings in 2020 and beyond.
