This month I have written blogs on my pet hates in contemporary dance, ballet schools and circus skills, Coppélia (starring Sergei Polunin), Ballet Central, dance education, Los Vivancos, dying for art, English National Ballet's dancer promotions, ballet babies and the RAD's course on dance for older learners.
I have also started a new blog series on ballet technique, where I will explore a different ballet step each month. First up, it's the pas de chat.
A review of Russian Seasons of XXI Century on Londonist
An interview with the winners of Live Vibe on Londondance
Two blogs on English National Ballet's A Tribute to Rudolf Nureyev: a write-up of the technical and studio preparations and a piece of the show's dress rehearsal
A write-up of the RAD's Dance and Lifelong Wellbeing Conference (p.24), a feature on Central School of Ballet (p.34) and a review of Urdang Academy's graduate show (p.61) in Dancing Times, August issue
And, Dance UK's July e-news
