DANCE 487The latest issue of DANCE magazine

In issue 487...

When asked what piece of advice she would give to a young dancer, Cassa Pancho MBE, founder of Ballet Black, replied: “Take what you’re doing seriously, but not yourself”. Surely this is inspirational advice for all of us, no matter what our age or experience. Read our interview with Cassa to find out more.

There is further #danceinspo where we talk to four young ISTD trained dancers about being selected to perform in Matthew Bourne’s new Romeo and Juliet. Why not write to us with your own stories, photos and inspiration?

A year ago we announced that the ISTD had been invited to partner in the Chance to Dance programme, run by the Royal Opera House and The Royal Ballet in partnership with The Royal Ballet School. Read interviews with five ISTD teachers involved in delivering the newly designed and highly successful programme.

“Every teacher out there is probably doing a lot more to be inclusive than they realise” says Amy Bastin, one of the three ISTD teachers who report on their individual experiences of teaching inclusive dance as part of the ISTD’s Accessing Pathways to Training for Young Disabled Dancers research project.

Issue 487 is packed with stunning photo-spreads from recent events, Society news and important diary dates and updates from HQ, including profiles of five new members of the leadership team, and a big thank-you to our Faculty Chairs. We wish you happy reading.
