“The ability to see movement clearly and to describe it evocatively is a rare and wonderful gift.”      Roger Copeland

Calling all young writers – an exciting opportunity to write about dance and win some great prizes!

Oxford Dance Writers is delighted to announce the launch of Dance Writers of the Future 2014, the third competition to find talented young writers on dance.  This year’s competition is once again generously supported by the Dancing Times, and by Oxford venues the New Theatre and the Playhouse, who are donating attractive prizes; and the competition is being promoted and supported by Dancin’ Oxford 2014.  Young writers are invited to submit dance writing on any of the dance shows they see in Oxford between 1st February and 20th March.  There is a lot to choose from!  Go to the Dance Writers of the Future page for full details of how to enter, and a list of shows over the competition period.


And please pass the information to other young people and students of your acquaintance, we would welcome their contributions!

Looking forward to hearing from you…
