If the cover of the latest issue of Dance Gazette looks like the poster for an epic action movie, that’s no surprise. In the dance world, few battles seem as titanic as that between live and recorded music.
Both dance teachers and professional companies juggle artistic ideals and practical realities. Most schools can’t access quality pianists, and few companies employ an in-house orchestra. Teachers, musicians and dance artists – including star ballerina Viktorina Kapitonova, composer Joby Talbot and Robert Battle, director of the revered Alvin Ailey company – ask if time is running out for live music.
We also ask when and how a young dancer should go on pointe, and uncover dance in vintage Vogue and the punk revolution. Grab your popcorn and enjoy the big picture.
