Dance Gazette single issue


Dance Gazette is an international dance publication produced by the Royal Academy of Dance and published three times a year, in February, June and October.

If you ever dreamed of floating through a classic ballet, this issue of Dance Gazette is for you. As the RAD launches Discovering Repertoire, which lets students explore iconic 19th-century ballets, six leading dancers share their experiences of these masterworks and give their best tips for turning technique into performance.

Our focus on all things classical also includes the father of Russian ballet, coaching at the Genée, the RAD’s Silver Swans project and the future of Kenneth MacMillan’s landmark ballets.

Even the classical world has its shadows. Recent revelations of sexual harassment by film mogul Harvey Weinstein prompted other professions to examine their cultures of secrecy and abuse. Dance Gazette’s exclusive investigation was under way long before the scandal broke.
