Designed by dance people for dance people, the Canadian Integrated Dance Database (CIDD) helps companies and artists archive their materials.
Many dance organizations and artists are faced with the ongoing problem of organizing their collections of papers, photographs, videotapes and artifacts. The CIDD provides a method of cataloguing the varied items found in a dance collection.
With the ability to upload records to a national database on the DCD web site, a catalogue of dance research materials can be accessed worldwide increasing the global profile of dance in Canada.

Dance Collection Danse would like to acknowledge that the land on which we work is the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat, the Anishnaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Métis, and the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation. It has been a site of human activity, including dance, for at least 15,000 years and we are grateful to all the caretakers, both recorded and unrecorded, of this land and of Turtle Island. Today, the meeting place of Toronto is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work and dance in the community, on this territory.
