The Canadian Integrated Dance Database has been folded into DCD Discover. Please visit https://discover.dcd.ca to search the collection and contact email@example.com if you have any questions. We are making our best efforts to respond to all research requests digitally during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Many dance organizations and artists are faced with the ongoing problem of organizing their collections of papers, photographs, videotapes and artifacts. DCD Discover, in an even deeper and more powerful way than the CIDD, provides a method of cataloguing the varied items found in a collection. The new system, which is still in development but already contains all of the CIDD data, is entirely web-based and strives to be accessible and inclusive while using public input and technologies like machine learning to collectively build and illuminate the data.

Dance Collection Danse would like to acknowledge that the land on which we work is the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat, the Anishnaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Métis, and the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation. It has been a site of human activity, including dance, for at least 15,000 years and we are grateful to all the caretakers, both recorded and unrecorded, of this land and of Turtle Island. Today, the meeting place of Toronto is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work and dance in the community, on this territory.
