The collection contains the records of Dance Pages, which were collected or created during the production of the magazine, as well as copies of the magazine from 1987 to 1997. Records were typically filed by subject or person rather than by type of record, so files contain a range of materials. The majority of the Dance Pages records are subject files, which primarily contain publicity information such as photographs and press releases for dance companies, dancers, schools, teachers, artists, musicians, filmmakers, photographers, performance venues, events, performances, and other dance-related topics. In addition to publicity materials, subject folders can contain drafts of articles and advertisements, paste-ups for advertisements and magazine features, illustrated graphics, press clippings, correspondence, invoices, brochures, flyers, programs, 35 mm slides, and negatives. The collection also contains administrative files, which hold materials related to magazine contributors, personnel, and business management. While the collection includes some financial documentation and correspondence, these materials are filed with the subject to which they pertain and are therefore distributed throughout the collection.
The materials housed within the collection are in a variety of formats, including paper-based records, magazines, paste-ups, illustrated graphics, newspaper clippings, press kits, programs, flyers, brochures, and catalogs, as well as photographs, contact sheets, negatives, 35 mm slides, and transparencies.
