Dance-tech Core Node: dance-tech projects supported by crucial members of the community!

I am very happy to announce that since February 1st 2017, and other related dance-tech projects have initiated process of developing a collaborative ownership  model involving several important organizations in the field.
These organizations represent diverse approaches and perspectives  on the transmission of dance knowledge, facilitating an exciting and strong synergy that may manifest in new developments and collaborations to support this community.
It is a moment of reconnection and reinvention.
Motion Bank from Frankfurt (Germany) have decided to step in to support directly the transition,  joining efforts with Bates College with direct financial support  covering the costs of server and hosting of and
Here are the words of Florian Jenett from Motion Bank:
"Motion Bank has explored intersections of dance and technology since 2010 building on projects that reach back to as early as 1994. Technology for us is an enabler, an invitation to see more and take new perspectives on an art form that is inherently hard to translate into other domains outside the body. We know Marlon for a long time and have been following his relentless efforts in shaping for this community and hence are happy to now be able to support it."
