These Old Dance Magazine Covers Are the Ultimate Throwback
This July marks Dance Magazine's 90th anniversary, and the milestone gave us the perfect excuse to do one of our favorite things: dive into our extensive archives of more than 1,000 covers.
We couldn't resist sharing just a few of the iconic and quirky images through the decades.
From major stars—think Judith Jamison, Mikhail Baryshnikov and Ginger Rogers—to big-name celebs with a dance connection, DM's been there for it all. (Yes, even Andy Warhol and Barbra Streisand are tied to our rich history.) Take a walk down memory lane with this video. How many dance luminaries do you recognize?
Jellicle obsessives, rejoice: There's a new video out that offers a (surprisingly substantive) look at the dancing that went down on the set of the new CATS movie.
When Dr. Mae Jemison was growing up, she was obsessed with space. But she didn't see any astronauts who looked like her.
"I said, Wait a minute. Why are all the astronauts white males?" she recounts in a CNN video. "What if the aliens saw them and said, Are these the only people on Earth?"
It's no surprise that dancers make some of the best TED Talk presenters. Not only are they great performers, but they've got unique knowledge to share. And they can dance!
If you're in need of a midweek boost, look no further than these eight presentations from some incredibly inspiring dance artists.
As Dance Magazine editors, we admittedly spend more time than we'd like sifting through stock photography. Some of it is good, more of it is bad and most of it is just plain awkward.
But when paired with the right caption, those shots magically transform from head-scratchers to meme-worthy images that illustrate our singular experience as dancers. You can thank the internet for this special salute to dancer moods.
