July 2021 issue

As promised last month, this issue of Dancing Times includes live reviews from most of the UK’s leading dance companies, and not just those based in London. It has been wonderful to be able to see performances in theatres again after the partial lifting of lockdown on May 17, and I hope our readers, like […]

Strictly Speaking: Week 8

Can we believe we’ve only got one show to go? Sob! Anyhow, this was – understandably – not a vintage semi-final. It feels like the celebs have barely begun, and yet here we are asking them to learn two dances. Overall, this… did not go well. It was basically the weakest outing for everyone except […]

Three dance tips for staying in competitive shape

The year 2020 affected all aspects of our lives. The dance world is just beginning to overcome its shock and stress and slowly get back on its feet. Just like me. In March and April, all the dance studios in New York were shut down. Teachers like me were forced to find a new path […]

Strictly Speaking: Week 7

Well, that was a jolly Musicals Week. Although very strange to think it’s already the quarter-finals, when it feels like we’ve only just begun the series. Product of both a shorter Strictly, and time losing all meaning in 2020. I’m both relieved we’re nearly at the end of this year and sad that our sparkly […]

Strictly Speaking: Week 6

A rather mediocre performance week, with some improvement in scoring, and alas still some glaring biases. However, poor Clara Amfo really doomed herself with an error-strewn jive that was actually marked quite kindly, yet cemented her place in the dance-off. Though I still think she got a raw deal overall this series, we never really […]

November 2020

Editorial and contents November 2020 First of all, I would like to thank everyone who sent their best wishes to Dancing Times on reaching its 110th anniversary last month. It was quite a milestone, and although we couldn’t celebrate in the way we had originally intended, your messages meant a huge amount to all of […]

Strictly Speaking: Week 4

This was quite the Bizarro Strictly, with a sadly absent Nicola and Katya, Motsi joining Bruno in Zoom purgatory, and Anton du Beke finally wearing the producers down and getting his shot at judging – the equivalent of a small child pleading for ice cream repeatedly during a six-hour drive. Yes, fine, don’t spill it […]

Strictly Speaking: Week 2

Marianka Swain on Strictly’s first elimination this year. Is Strictly the last remaining thread holding this nation together? Arguably yes, given that the BBC had to cut away from Boris Johnson’s press conference on Saturday lest riots break out in the streets. Perhaps also because there are only so many ill-formatted graphs one person can […]

Safer Dance

The government’s guidance, Keeping Children Safe in Community Clubs, After-School Clubs and Tuition, was published today, October 21, 2020. Along with many other voluntary groups and clubs for children, dance schools are not regulated by any single organisation and the government’s guidance remains non-statutory. Now leading lights in the world of dance have set up […]

A new partnership has been confirmed between Birmingham Royal Ballet and Birmingham Repertory Theatre, which will see the two established companies combine creative forces to stage new dance works in the city. The partnership will be launched with four shows for live audiences in October, following the recent announcement by the government allowing socially distanced […]
