Comprising over 50 issues spanning five years, as well as each new issue published, the title can now be perused digitally on web, iOS and Android as part of a recent collaboration with archive experts Exact Editions.
First published in 1894 as the house magazine of the Cavendish Rooms, a ballroom dancing establishment, Dancing Times is the oldest monthly magazine devoted to dancing. It was bought in 1910 by P J Richardson and T M Middleton and transformed into a national periodical, covering all forms of dancing and reporting worldwide. Maintaining the highest standards of criticism and illustration, each issue gives voice to leading authorities, encourages awareness of dance history and stresses the importance of dance in education.
The brand new archive provides digital solutions that render it an invaluable resource for both academics and industry professionals. From seamless cross-platform access to the robust search function, the platform is designed to allow users to get the most out of the archive’s compelling content.
Jonathan Gray, editor of Dancing Times, remarked: “The new digital archive offers us an opportunity to maximise revenue from institutional subscriptions, a market in which we are particularly keen to expand. The advanced digital functionalities make it an attractive product and we’re excited to see what the future holds.”
Daryl Rayner, managing director of Exact Editions, commented: “The archived issues of Dancing Times look brilliant across all digital platforms, and I’m sure that individual and institutional subscribers alike will relish having instant access to such a stunning resource.”
