August 2020 issue

August 2020 issue Yes, the headline on the front cover of this month’s Dancing Times is correct – dance really has been returning to the stage in several countries, although it hasn’t quite happened here in the UK just yet. As lockdowns are eased around the world, in Dance Scene International our critics report on […]

On Lockdown

What is a dancer without dance? For me, it’s been over 80 days since the official lockdown began where I’m located (Sarasota, Florida), and the enforced pause in my normal life has afforded space for plenty of thinking. I’ve found the cut and thrust of my old routine made it seem there was just one […]

July 2020 issue

Like many others, I was shocked and outraged by the killing in Minneapolis on May 25 of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, by a white police officer who knelt on his neck for eight minutes and 46 seconds. It rightly sparked protests and demonstrations around the world, and highlighted once more the ugly truth […]

June 2020 issue

All of the team at Dancing Times hope you are keeping safe and well in these difficult times. We have been very touched by the messages we got from readers over the past month saying how delighted they were to receive the magazine during the lockdown (you can read a selection of them in Letters). […]

May 2020 issue

With everyday life seemingly at a standstill, I was beginning to wonder how we could possibly fill the pages of Dancing Times this month.

World Ballet Day

At this current time, I think it’s important people have access to content that shows some of the realities of a dancer’s life. In a world where we are all calibrating to a life of social-distancing and self-isolating, many of us are consuming the arts online. I thought now was a useful time to look […]

March 2020 issue

There is so much in the March issue of Dancing Times, we don’t know where to begin. This month, we hear from Kenneth Tindall about Geisha, his new full-length work for Northern Ballet, talk to pianist Jason Ridgway about his 20-year collaboration with choreographer Richard Alston, report back on the 2020 UK Open from Bournemouth, […]

The three artists, who each use the body in different ways to explore history, inheritance and storytelling, will create ten days of live performances and site-specific installations for […]

In search of nourishment

You could call it a feast of narratives. The Royal Ballet has served up The Sleeping Beauty and Coppélia for Christmas and dances Onegin throughout February. Birmingham Royal Ballet brought The Nutcracker to Birmingham and the Royal Albert Hall; that company has just launched a long tour of Swan Lake. English National Ballet (ENB) followed […]
