RESET2020 with Company Wayne McGregor

2020. It’s been a difficult year for the dance industry, and especially for freelance artists, freelance dancers, and recent dance graduates.

Review of BalletBoyz Them/Us

Last night I was fortunate enough to attend the BalletBoyz West End debut with the double bill Them/Us at the Vaudeville Theatre.
