Contemporary Dance Online
Beautifully designed, this site, based
in the U.K., has features, interviews, news, and information of interest
to both dancers and fans.
A site that's a news center of links to print and web articles elsewhere
about dance (and art, music, theater, books and ideas) . AJ now includes
original material too, a collection of blogs, all by well-known critics
and arts writers, among them:
If you miss Tobi Tobias's
column in New York Magazine, take heart. Tobias is writing the same always
knowledgeable, often acerbic, and beautifully phrased pieces here. Best
of all, on AJ, Tobias's writing appears more frequently!
Jorgen Wilhelmsson's collection of photographs and biographical information
on virtually every ballerina who ever put on shoes.
An online newsletter for those who love ballet
Articles about classical and neoclassical
ballet; archives from the newsletter Ballet Alert!, and an active message
board with more than 140,000 posts.
The first major web site devoted to dance
on the Net, Ballet.co has an enormous data base of reviews, interviews
and calendar listings, a monthly magazine, and an active postings page.
Mostly, though not exclusively, about dance in the U.K
A huge collection of links to ballet and
dance comopanies around the world.
"Originally proposed sometime during
the last century to be a forum for artists who have something to do with
movement and movement creation, Choreograph.net attempts to consider choreography
in a very broad sense, so broad indeed as to include all processes of
arrangement and creation. Consequently this site is dedicated to everything
that spans or encircles contemporary choreography, dance and/or culture.
"An inclusive site for for ballet,
modern and all forms of performance dance."
Another online magazine, this one from
Paris, in three languages (French, German, English). Calendar of events
in Europe, reviews, many of Paris Opera Ballet, and interviews.
More than 3,500 links ballet and modern dance
companies, dancers, schools, etc.
An almost dizzying number of activities
are offered here, mostly aimed, it seems, at dancers and teachers..
Dozens of message boards, each aimed at a specific type (under 13s, men
who dance); a chat room; downloadable art; advice columns; links to links,
and more "activities" than we've had time to try.
Includes a database of "dance films
and videos in current distribution in the U.S., and includes videos in
circulation around the world," as well as information about DFA's
events, including its annual Dance on Camera Festival.
"The online source of next-day reviews
of dance performances." Overnight reviews of ballet and modern dance
performances, especially in New York, but from other cities as well.
The first collection of dance links, hence
its title. This is a very comprehensive list.
An online supplement to the magazine we all know and love. There are reviews
here that aren't in the print version, and their calendar is The Source.
The Dance Pages of Estelle Souche
A very rich and personal site. It's the
kind of site you work through slowly; the treasures are hidden beneath
a list of topics. There's history here, and a photo gallery, information
on companies and dancers--"you choose," as Mle. Souche puts
Essays by choreographer (Dance
