Previous Issues

Choreologica, the journal of the European Association for Dance History, aims to provide a forum for historical and theoretical explorations of dance histories and practices. These may include analyses of individual works or investigations, whether they may be monographic, contextual or interdisciplinary. Submissions may address topics ranging from past dance practices to contemporary themes.


Following our new resolution, all past and future issues of Choreologica will be made fully accessible to the general public, no longer requiring a membership for access.

We will gradually make each single paper available for individual download and provide a search facility for easily locating papers by author or keyword. Until that is fully functional, please browse through the list of past issues, and download/save the whole volume to access the desired paper.
