This guide provides assistance with identifying relevant resources for research in dance.

Article Databases

The Library has access to hundreds of databases with subscriptions to academic journals, newspapers, magazines, and more!

You can access articles the library owns and some articles provided by library databases through the Library Search (but not all!). Simply search for your topic in the search box and hit enter. Once results have displayed, use the left sidebar to limit your search to articles or peer-reviewed articles.​

Once you have tried the Library Search, delve into article databases one by one using the Databases tab on the Library Homepage.

Below are a few databases that contain articles relevant to Dance. Please click here to see a comprehensive list.

Magazines and Scholarly Journals

The best way to search for specific periodicals is to search by title or keyword in the Journal Finder, under "Journals" on the Library Homepage. Try typing in keywords such as "dance" or "performing arts" to get a list of specific journals.

Here are a few of the journals we have access to:

American Journal of Dance Therapy
Ballet-Dance Magazine
