Dance International covers classical and contemporary dance in all its facets, locally, nationally and internationally, with lively critical analysis, expert commentary and superb photography. The quarterly magazine informs and delights readers with in-depth coverage of the diversity that inspires the art form.
Dance International makes an important contribution to the public conversation about dance of today, while offering reflection and insight into the past. As well, with almost 40 years of continuous publication, they provide a historical record of dance in British Columbia, Canada and abroad that is a valuable resource for scholars and the general public. BC has many prominent locals that have achieved international success in the dance world, including choreographer Crystal Pite.
The magazine has humble origins as a newsletter for the Vancouver Ballet Society almost 40 years ago. Now a 64-page quarterly featuring articles from local and international writers, the magazine is distributed not only in Canada, but also in the U.S. and around the world.
“For a lot of our writers, dance is their life, it’s their career and they invest a lot of their own time and money researching and being involved in dance. I feel it’s important that we’re there to support them.”
– Kaija Pepper, Editor Dance International
