Dance Dispatches is a digital dance publication
that celebrates global dance traditions and communities.

Welcome to Dance Dispatches, a home for every dancer and everything dance.

We inspect different cultures through the lens of dance, and we are always looking to feature new dance styles; but we write about mainstream dance genres such as ballet and modern dance, too. 

Dance Dispatches is London-based. However, we review dance shows and dance classes around the world – from European folk dances to Argentine tango and K-pop dance (choreography to Korean pop songs).

We share global dance news and interviews with professional dance artists. We also offer insight from recreational dancers and brand new dance enthusiasts because we believe that their experiences are also valid, and that the dance community should be as inclusive and accessible as possible. Imagine: what a joy it would be if the whole world was dancing! 

Our lifestyle section covers everything dancers love outside of the studio and theatre: cross-training, food and drink, spas and clinics, wear and gear, and travel. 

If you are interested in one particular dance style, you can easily find posts sorted by dance genre. Otherwise, you can find articles by destination. To locate specific posts, enter your query in the search field found in the upper right hand corner of the screen. (If you are using a mobile device, please note that you will find the search bar at the bottom of the page.)

Alison Roberts-Tse founded Dance Dispatches in 2019.

Dance Dispatches FAQ

Want to know more about Dance Dispatches? This FAQ was created especially for you. 

Is Dance Dispatches a dance blog or a dance magazine?

Dance Dispatches is a digital dance publication that is a hybrid dance blog-dance magazine. 

We are like a dance blog because our posts are personal.

Whether it’s dance classes, workouts or spas, we like to experience everything first-hand. We prefer to share our genuine opinions with you, instead of recycling press releases. 

We are like a dance magazine because we highlight the wider dance community.

While we do like to talk about our personal experiences, we know there are many other dance enthusiasts doing exciting things, and we want to feature them. Our dance news covers professional dance artists, dance educators and non-profit dance organizations.

What inspired you to create Dance Dispatches?

Alison Roberts-Tse was inspired to create an inclusive global dance community that covers a variety of dance genres, a true home for all dancers and everything dance. 

Why do I see a mix of American English and British spellings across the site?

Our publication is based in London, hence, the British spellings. However, we work with a variety of partners and we intentionally localize the spelling to suit different audiences. (That one was for Americans, did you catch it?)
