The Korean Society of Dance Studies (KSDS), founded in 2001, is an academic community for dance studies. It introduces various research topics suitable for the present era and pursues academic maturity through convergence between disciplines. The society regularly publishes academic journals (KCI-registered journals) and encourages research in the field of dance through academic conferences. We seek ways to develop and support academic programs centered on young researchers, and strive for the role and responsibility of the society.
