I recently read Dance Spirit and Point magazines and I felt inspired reading through the dancer's profiles and other articles in the magazine but I am thinking that these magazines are geared toward kids and more so when the topics are about prom! :lol:

My prom was 10 years ago! :rolleyes: Are there dance magazine's that make adult dancers feel more included or should I continue reading those magazines?

 

Thanks! :dry:

My prom was 14 years ago. I subcribe to Pointe, Dance Spirit and Dance Magazine, I've never felt as if those magazines were geared toward kids. when you say kids, I think of those who were born since your prom.

Dance Gazette is a great magazine from the UK. However, it is not available for subscription. Instead, you get the magazine as a benefit of being a member of the Royal Academy of Dance.

Dancer.com is a great online resource. They started as a newspaper- I don't know if they still have a hard copy for sale, but you could check the site. My prom was a while ago as well, but I still like to read them all ( I also get the professional rate for them, so they're cheap) and like the pictures. I find Dance Magazine is less aimed at the working dancer than it was while I was growing up. There's Danceview if you want dance reviews as well.

I subcribe to Pointe, Dance Spirit and Dance Magazine,

 

 

I subscribe to these three myself. I am not going to renew Dance Spirit because of the added cost of Dance Magazine which my husband got for me recently. It is a bit too full of ads for teen competitions and yes, other things geared to teens, for me. I will be 47 in less than a week. I have seen things I enjoy reading in it, but I read all of the latest Dance Magazine.

 

 

Happy reading,

Thanks for the replies! I did subscribe to Dance Spirit and Pointe mags because I got a really good 1 yr. subscription price on a magazine website! I do want Dance Magazine too! :-)

I agree. I got a deal for Dance Spirit for $10 for a year.

But I feel SO old even at 28 reading it. Haha. It's a bit TOO young. Sometimes there are good articles, though.

I subscribed to Dance this last week AGAIN - they lost my last subscription and I wasn't charged. I got a deal for $24.95 a year on that - which was the cheapest and most legit way I found it. I got Pointe for 12.95$.

Now I'm looking/waiting on a deal for Dance Teacher. I am not a teacher, of course, but I found that it seems to have some really good info and since it's from a more "adult" perspective, you can take it as advice to utilize as a student, too!

 

I am so rambling - sorry!

 

Whoa! On an OT note, they approved the Sirius/XM merger! AWESOME!

You know, I once got an offer for a dance teacher magazine at professional rates.

I taught tap for about a semester 15 years ago in Germany. I couldn't imagine why they have me down as a teacher....

How some of them think they know my age is beyond me too. Few get it right.

I think I got offered professional rates for my first year of Pointe Mag too. It was something like $9 or $10 for a whole year.

I also get mailings for summer intensives or some such aimed at teens.

I only subscribe to Pointe magazine. Sometimes I wish there were more articles geared toward adult students but I am pretty happy with it.

 

I am not sure if this is slightly away from the topic but this does anyone here subscribe to Pilates Style magazine? http://www.pilatesstyle.com

I saw it for sale when I was on vacation in Seattle.

I like Pointe magazine best. I let my Dance Magazine subscription lapse because of the expense--now I just check at the bookstore, and if it has something I'm interested in I'll buy the single copy.

 

I quit buying Dance Spirit after just a couple of issues. I decided that after I went through the issues and tore out the double-spread ads for competitions, costumes, music, etc and found about six pages of actual editorial content that was worth anything to me. I get creeped out by the ads for competitions that show pre-teens in full makeup and midriff-baring costumes. Blech. But that could just be because I'm only really interested in ballet, not other types of dance. I've never even watched the "reality" dance shows. Now if they had ballet reality shows, that would catch my interest!

Pointe Magazine (even though it seems like every new issue gets thinner and thinner).

Dance International

Dance Europe (in Wisconsin our "current" issue is always a month behind) B)
