Dance is the Word

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, The Ballet Bag .

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. The course includes the chance to review Choreographics - one of the most popular events of the season, whereby dancers of the Company are given the opportunity to choreograph their own programme of work, this year inspired by the theme of Post War America.

Writing Skills day: 6 June, 10am - 4pm at Westminster Reference Library

Behind-the-Scenes activities: 10, 11 & 18 June, Evening sessions at English National Ballet/Sadler's Wells Theatre

Choreographics Performance: 19 June, 7.30pm at Sadler's Wells, Lilian Baylis Theatre
