Welcome to Dance Gazette's celebration of Margot Fonteyn, marking the centenary of the iconic ballerina and landmark President of the RAD. A flotilla of features explores varied aspects of her unique career - we dive into the archives, meet artists and admirers, and explore her impact on the art of dance, on fashion, and on the RAD itself.
Fonteyn will also be prominent in the RAD's own centenary programme next year - not least in giving her name to its flagship international ballet competition. This issue preview some of the other exciting events due in 2020. And for something completely different, how about video games? They are having a bigger impact on dance than you might think.
Margot Fonteyn was a ballerina like none other. Colleagues and fans describe her unmatched effect and continuing legacy.
She wasn't keen to take the role, but Fonteyn proved a groundbreaking RAD President. We examine her transforming impact.

Remarkably, Fonteyn extended her performing career through her fifties. We meet the current dancers following her lead.
Natalia Goncharova designed some of the Ballet Russes' signature works: eye-popping marvels of space and colour.
