This issue of Dance Gazette explores the idea of home. We celebrate the RAD’s new global headquarters and offer a unique audio tour of Battersea, the RAD’s London neighbourhood. We discover how dance can feel like home for the LGBTQ+ community, how choreographer Bronislava Nijinska created a masterpiece in exile, and how dance teachers and artists balance a demanding career with equally demanding caring responsibilities. And we also meet Tim Arthur, the RAD’s enthusiastic new Chief Executive.
David Jays writes for the Guardian and Sunday Times, and is editor of Dance Gazette, the Royal Academy of Dance magazine. @mrdavidjays.
