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.

Dance School of the Year 2020

As Dance School of the Year (DSOTY) celebrates its eighth anniversary, there’s never been a better time to consider entering a school for these prestigious awards.

Children […]

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. Although by necessity there are fewer pages than normal in this issue, in the event it didn’t prove too onerous, as there is as much to discuss about dance during a […]
