What Our Readers Have to Say

"I find the magazine one of the most interesting dance publications I receive - so clearly arranged. I do look forward to receiving each copy and that is why I find myself keeping it and looking back over past issues periodically, thanks to you all concerned."

"...Keep up the good work with a very high standard magazine and excellent communication with a reasonable membership subscription."

"I always look forward to DANCE magazine."

"The magazine is a wonderful lifeline to teachers overseas as to what is happening at HQ or changes in the syllabi, so a very big thank you for putting it out so regularly."

"I have retired from Ballet, although I do Ballroom and Latin American for pleasure. As I live on the Isle of Man and am therefore a little isolated from the mainstream of events, I really welcome the magazine as a means of keeping in touch."

"I am very impressed with DANCE magazine. Having only just gained my Cecchetti Associate I have not had many copies of DANCE. However the ones I have read have been most interesting and very informative."

"I really enjoy the magazine and think the photographs are superb."

“Without a doubt the best thing about ISTD is DANCE magazine. The reason is that it has kept me close to my daughter and her dance life. I read it cover to cover and she reads a copy wherever she is and we talk about the articles, the exam successes of students, upcoming competitions, new books and DVDs she would like. Despite the long physical distance, I still feel like I know about her world of dance. As a by-product I have also started painting from photographs in DANCE that inspire me. Please keep up the good work and know that DANCE magazine serves so many worthwhile purposes.”
