This paper explains and draws together two projects from different disciplines: dance studies and hypertext writing. Each project sets out to examine the processes and practices of hypertextuality, and to develop new ways of writing using electronic technology and the Internet. The dance studies project seeks to link the critical theory of intertextuality (as a means of dance interpretation) with the theoretical and practical concerns of hypertextuality. It hopes to show a convergence of the two into a working system for analysing dance in a network of people, institutions and information. The Associative Writing Framework (AWF) project seeks to explore how writers could best be supported in representing and exploring hypertextuality in a Web environment, and producing new hypertexts which integrate or ``glue together'' existing Web resources (ideas, concepts, data, descriptions, experiences, claims, theories, suggestions, reports etc.). Following the combining of the two projects we report on some initial evaluation of the AWF system by dance experts, and there is a discussion of where the relationship might lead and the potential outcomes of the collaboration.
