Dance Magazine – The Body Issue

I’ll be in the Adirondack Mountains for the next few days, with little or no internet access and therefore no blogging. It’s not always easy to suddenly disconnect from email, blogging, and general online dependence, but I’m really looking forward to escaping from Manhattan for some hiking, kayaking, and biking in the fresh mountain air.

Before departing, a note of interest: I just received the July issue of Dance Magazine, which is the annual Body Issue. Although not all of the articles are available online yet (they’ll become available later in the month), you can read editor-in-chief Wendy Perron’s “Curtain Up”, which provides a general overview of the articles in this month’s issue. More to come on The Body Issue when I return!

    Thanks for pointing to this — I think I’m going to go get a copy at the bookstore this weekend. I obviously haven’t read it yet, but just from reading Wendy Perron’s introductory column it seems like the focus is on women. I guess women do tend to have more body issues than men generally, but it is kind of interesting to me how “the body” often seems to be feminized. Gives me much to think about!

    Anyway, have a great trip, a great holiday, and I might see you at Giselle next week!
