Welcome to Dance Today
Welcome to our new-look website! At our grand old age – we are 100 this month – we thought it was an apt time for a bit of a nip and tuck, so as well as redesigning the magazine, we have updated our web look too. We are just in time for “Strictly Come Dancing” season, so stay up to the minute here with Marianka Swain’s new blog, Strictly speaking, complete with our sequin-o-meter rating the dances!
For more “Strictly” news, see our October issue (out on October 6) where Marianka meets new professionals Artem Chigvintsev and Jared Murillo. Elsewhere in the issue, we have some lovely, nostalgic features by Mary Clarke on Dance Today’s history and Zoë Anderson (How the Charleston changed the world). We hope you enjoy browsing through the website and magazine and, as we celebrate our centenary, we would like to thank our contributors, our advertisers and you, our readers, who have made reaching our 100th birthday possible. Here’s to the next century.
Our cover photograph this month captures our “Best performance” in Strictly so far (we’re up to Week 9, as we go to press): Susanna Reid and Kevin Clifton’s paso doble in the Tower Ballroom. Their traditional, gimmick-free performance danced – even more groundbreaking! – to traditional paso music was a hit with the audience and judges alike. For other highlights – and low points – from this year’s Strictly Come Dancing, see our blogger Marianka Swain’s feature. Our blog “Strictly speaking” is, in the words of our star letter winner this month, “by far the best and most entertaining commentary of Strictly, bar none”. And who are we to argue? Do let us know your thoughts on this year’s Strictly and anything else through Facebook, Twitter, email – or even the old-fashioned way, by post. Finally, enjoy our festive giveaway. Happy Christmas!
