The Dance Collection Danse library consists of more than 600 books donated by many individuals, as well as books purchased by DCD and those published by DCD. Special thanks to Tal Aronson for compiling this list. Books are not loaned, but reference copies are available to researchers by appointment. Contact DCD for more information or to book an appointment.
DCD staff began doing oral history interviews when research first began on the ENCORE! ENCORE! reconstruction project in 1983. DCD co-founders Lawrence Adams and Miriam Adams, along with others such as Sonja Barton and Lorraine Thompson, conducted hours of interviews with Canada’s early dance artists. Dance historians have also contributed to the collection by donating taped interviews with notable subjects. There are over 1100 hours of oral history interviews in the collection. DCD has begun the time-consuming process of digitizing the oral history collection, some of which can now be heard on DCD’s virtual exhibitions. Oral histories must be digitized before researchers have access to them. Arrangements may be made to digitize an oral history upon request.
