Welcome to the fourth volume of Dance Research Aotearoa. We are excited to share with you this unique collection of articles that explore topics connected to community dance, social justice and social transformation. The papers published within this volume are drawn from distinctive dance events held in Aotearoa in 2015—the Dance and Social Justice Symposia held in Hamilton on 3 October (hosted by The University of Waikato), and in Auckland on 5 November (hosted by the University of Auckland), along with The Moving Communities International Conference on Community Dance held in Dunedin in November 2015 (hosted by The University of Otago). Alison East provides an overview of the Moving Communities conference in her introductory comments in this volume, entitled Dance in/for/with/as/Community: Re-defining community dance in 2015–16. East begins with a significant question about how dance can play a meaningful role in fostering healthy communities. This question is explored in the articles in this volume.
