  1. Tango Fire at Peacock Theatre

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Monday 30 March 2009Performance 17 Mar - 11 Apr 09

    ‘The two-hour show is a trot through tango’s history, with its origins in the late 19th-century bordellos of Buenos Aieres and its journey into Europe’s respectable salons and onto the world’s ballroom stage.’  

  2. Antiono Gades Carmen at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review David Dougill, Sunday Times, Monday 30 March 2009Performance 19 - 22 Mar 09

    ‘The principal dancers, though good in the steps, disappoint.’ 

  3. Tango Fire at Peacock Theatre

    Press Review David Dougill, Sunday Times, Monday 30 March 2009Performance 17 Mar - 11 Apr 09

    ‘The twosome numbers are choreographed by the individual couples and feature their own speciality tricks: daredevil lifts, drops, slides and wrap-rounds. This is where tango meets circus.’ 

  4. Henri Oguike Dance Company in Front Line/White Space/Falling/Finale at Queen Elizabeth Hall, Soutbank Centre

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Monday 30 March 2009Performance 24 & 25 Mar 09

    ‘Oguike is a significant talent, albeit with a lower profile than many of his peers. This is baffling as his choreography has an ease and humour and sensuality that has long been absent from contemporary dance and which, if we’re honest, we all rather miss… 

  5. Antiono Gades Carmen at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 30 March 2009Performance 19 - 22 Mar 09

    ‘This Carmen still has vigour, but it must once have been bolder, more raw, more powerful.’ 

  6. American Ballet Theatre in Swan Lake at London Coliseum

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 30 March 2009Performance 25 - 31 Mar 09

    ‘ABT goes for girls of all sizes, so lines were a little ragged. But in their tensile strength and fierce engagement the corps magnificently captured the eerie power of wildlife en masse.’ 

  7. American Ballet Theatre in Swan Lake at London Coliseum

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 30 March 2009Performance 25 - 31 Mar 09

    ‘As a production of a 19th-century classic, American Ballet Theatre’s Swan Lake is bonkers. As a night out, it’s a surprisingly good time.’ 

  8. American Ballet Theatre in Swan Lake at London Coliseum

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 30 March 2009Performance 25 - 31 Mar 09

    ‘The standard of dancing is high, and in David Hallberg, who dances Prince Siegfried, ABT has one of the finest classicists on the world stage.’ 

  9. Ballet Nacional de Espana at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Monday 30 March 2009Performance 27 - 29 Mar 09

    ‘The best piece is Fernando Romero’s Caprichos, a swift-moving series of portraits that builds on the company’s strengths: exacting technical standards, disciplined ensemble dancing, formal rigour.’  

  10. Siobhan Davies Dance in The Collection at Victoria Miro Gallery & Siobhan Davies Studios

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 30 March 2009Performance 24 Mar - 9 Apr 09

    ‘Davies’ dance element, typically, looks sparse and unyielding on first viewing, but expands and enriches in the mind.’ 

  11. Siobhan Davies Dance in The Collection at Victoria Miro Gallery & Siobhan Davies Studios

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Monday 30 March 2009Performance 24 Mar - 9 Apr 09

    ‘It opened only at the beginning of this week, but already I’ve visited The Collection twice. Partly this is because there’s much to see and ponder in an exhibition that fruitfully probes the territorial crossovers between dance, performance and the … 

  12. Siobhan Davies Dance in The Collection at Victoria Miro Gallery & Siobhan Davies Studios

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 30 March 2009Performance 24 Mar - 9 Apr 09

    ‘This is dance that has evolved beyond the need for an audience. It continues, implacable, with or without you. Hold that thought.’ 

  13. News: Children turn to dance

    Friday 27 March 2009

    96% of schools now offering dance and sporting role models on Strictly Come Dancing are factors behind the huge increase in children, boys in particular, now taking part in dance at school. Read more in the Obse… Continue Reading

  14. Antiono Gades Carmen at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Friday 27 March 2009Performance 19 - 22 Mar 09

    ‘Magnetic and middle-aged, Stella Arauzo’s Carmen was compelling in her fierce, independent carnality. Adrián Galia’s Don José was likewise spot-on, while Jairo Rodríguez turned the toreador into a sternly sexy cartoon. ‘  

  15. Eva Yerbabuena at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 27 March 2009Performance 23 - 25 Mar 09

    ‘It is, at its best, intoxicating for the public, as are the skills of great musical virtuosi. The stage is bare, lit with some feeling for shadows; the programme lasts 90 minutes, without interval; the singers are loud, and the guitarists brilliant. For aficionado…
