Dance is the Word is back for a 5th year!
Once again, English National Ballet is running a thought-provoking dance writing course, for aspiring arts bloggers and journalists. Facilitated by The Times dance and theatre critic, Donald Hutera, Dance is the Word this year will also feature a masterclass led by professional bloggers,.
Develop your skills in article and feature writing, whilst gaining exclusive behind-the-scenes access to a world-leading ballet company, through interviews, observing choreographic sessions and dress rehearsals.
