Access to the Dance Documentation in Mexico. Where are all the Files?

Aarón Lozano Aguilar

Recently, the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), through the Directorate of Dance, put available to researchers, scholars and the public in general the first digital repository of art at the University. We are talking about the creation of an educational space of digital reference that allows access to the University community and all stakeholders, with the choreographic acquis of the dance in the UNAM, which covers the period of 2009-2015.

The implementation of this repository specialized in dance comes to fill a void in the information field, for in Mexico there are only a few institutions that have worried about the fate of the documentation generated by the dance through time. In this article, it will be discussed the importance of the documentation of dance, as well as the efforts and work that some institutions in this area carried out to preserve, organize, and disseminate the memory of dance in our country will be known.
