A thesis titled “The Evolution of Professional Standards for Dance in Ontario: CADA-ON and the PSD” was recently completed by dance researcher Christa Lochead as part of her Master’s degree at York University. Now bound by the university, the thesis is publicly available for consultation. Through research with the Ontario chapter of the Canadian Alliance of Dance Artists (CADA-ON) during its 2008/09 fiscal year, Lochead was able to investigate the impact of CADA’s Professional Standards for Dance (PSD). “It is wonderful to see this document added to the research in dance,” commented Elizabeth Chitty, executive director of CADA-ON, a professional association and non-profit service organization founded by dance artists for dance artists. Lochead’s focus during her Masters in dance studies was on cultural policy and arts advocacy. Her thesis was completed in July 2009.
