Met up last Sunday with Nicholas Minns, who began his blog Writing about dance in the spring.  A space for longer pieces in response to current performances and events, it demonstrates Nicholas’ belief in the importance of the descriptive element of dance writing and criticism, capturing the fleeting and ephemeral and bringing it to life for the benefit of those who could not witness it live.  Observant and thought-provoking reflections from a dance practitioner, it provides a welcome alternative to much all too brief dance criticism; add this link to your list of favourites:

For those of you that saw work in progress on Dancing the Invisible – Late Work at the URC in April, here is Nicholas’ full account of the performance of the developed work at the Ivy Arts Centre, Guildford:
