Journal of Dance & Somatic Practices (Journal)

ISSN 17571871 , ONLINE ISSN 1757188X

This peer-reviewed journal focuses on the relationship between dance and somatic practices, and the influence of this body of practice on the wider performing arts. The journal will be aimed at scholars and artists, providing a space for practitioners and theorists to debate the work, to consider the impact and influence of the work on performance, and examine the interventions that somatic practices can have on other disciplines and the implications for research and teaching.

Note from the Editors

The Editors are currently working through a high number of submissions. New submissions to JDSP are therefore on hold until January 2022.

The Journal of Dance and Somatic Practices is an international refereed journal published twice a year. It has been in publication since 2009 for scholars and practitioners whose research interests focus on the relationship between dance and somatic practices, and the influence that this body of practice exerts on the wider performing arts. In recent years, somatic practices have become more central to many artists' work and have become more established within educational and training programmes. Despite this, as a body of work it has remained largely at the margins of scholarly debate, finding its presence predominantly through the embodied knowledge of practitioners and their performative contributions.

This journal provides a space to debate the work, to consider the impact and influence of the work on performance and discuss the implications for research and teaching. The journal serves a broad international community and invites contributions from a wide range of discipline areas. Particular features include writings that consciously traverse the boundaries between text and performance, taking the form of ‘visual essays', interviews with leading practitioners, book reviews, themed issues and conference/symposium reports.
