Routine is an online space for dance and performance, publishing weekly reviews on dance events in NYC. Through critical writing that attends to the afterlives of performance events, Routine responds to the cultural imperative of perfomance, choreography, and the labor of dance makers.

Get involved with our growth by subscribing to our newsletter, connecting with our socials, submitting writing, and chatting us up.


A kind of movement practice in its own right, Routine takes email seriously. Subscribe to get updates on new Routine content and upcoming NYC performances, sent out as a curated list, every Thursday.


As part of our mission to promote dance literacy, we use social media to routinely share snippets of performance writing that moves us.


From dancers, dance makers, and witnesses of dance, Routine is currently accepting writing on performance events and performance culture. Accepted submissions are compensated and published online under Routine's banner. Inquire to submit.
