Code of Silence

A Call to Action to Address and Prevent Abuse in Dance Communities By Marie France Forcier

In the March/April issue of The Dance Current, Marie France Forcier hosted the print conversation, “Creating Safe Spaces.” The article focused on sharing strategies for identifying and preventing abusive situations. In this follow-up, Forcier delves deeper into the problematic, widespread and systematic experiences that lay at the root of that discussion by challenging what she identifies as the code of silence within the discipline.
