Monday, 08 September 2014

ana laguna and mats ek c stephanie bergerThe Elixir Festival celebrates older dance artists and lifelong creativity. Held at London’s Sadler’s Wells from September 12 to 15, it includes workshops, performances and a full day conference, titled Art of Age.

Kevin Berry, who wrote for Dance Today and Dancing Times for many years, sadly died on August 12, after living with cancer for several years. A memorial celebration for Kevin will be held at 2.30pm at the Quaker Meeting House in Airton, near Skipton, Yorkshire on September 21.

His daughter, Liz Smith, will be doing the Twilight Walk in memory of Kevin to raise money for the Brain Tumour Charity. “Many people respected him as a journalist and supporter of the arts but to me he was simply the best Dad you could ask for,” she says. You can make a donation at her JustGiving page.

“Kevin was one of the kindest people you could hope to meet,” said Dancing Times editor Jonathan Gray. Everyone at Dance Today and Dancing Times misses Kevin, and we extend our deepest sympathy to his wife, Pat, and his children and grandchildren.
