Dance is documented in a number of theaters throughout the world, but few are designed specifically for dance documentation. Often, one finds it necessary to take the documentation to the dance. Presenting venues and festivals are excellent opportunities to record dance in a performance setting. Below is a list of facilities that either maintain regular documentation activities or have engaged in documentation activities that go beyond documentation during public performance.
