A list of the top ten dance tweeters in The Huffington Post.


We soon discovered in our research that the more prolific tweeters out there tend to come from the ballet world. As a result, our focus here skews heavily toward the genre. That's where we hope you come in. Know of any good modern dance tweeters? How about hip hop or salsa? Let us know in the comments!

A review of Northern Ballet in "I Got Rhythim" by Charles Hutchinson in The Press.


Rhapsody In Blue is the ensemble peak, a perfect union of shifting music and gorgeous movement, and Kevin Poeung provides two of the show’s high points, a duo for I Got Rhythm with Benjamin Mitchell and a dazzling solo for I Got Plenty O Nuttin.

A review of "Matthew Bourne's Early Adventures" by Luke Jennings in The Observer.


I first saw Spitfire at the ICA in 1988. This was an era when the abstract held sway in modern dance, but here was something arch, theatrical and, most shocking of all, funny. Costuming himself and three male colleagues in string vests and Y-fronts, Bourne drew on the imagery of the Littlewoods catalogue to create a camp homage to romantic ballet. Spitfire was short but it featured all of the tropes that Bourne would later explore so effectively: gender reversal, ballet-historical jokes and the ironic objectivisation of the male form. And it's as funny today, with Christopher Marney's soulful-tragique preening a particular treat.

Sacramento Ballet holds its second annual "Tapas and Tutus" fundraiser.

Tapas and Tutus brought over 150 dance and art enthusiasts to the event sponsored by long time supporter James Hargrove.

Many of the dancers mixed with the audience as they too celebrated the event. Their enthusiasm also helped during the live auction as their spirit brought higher bids on certain items.

A preview of Texas Ballet Theater's 2012-13 season.

Peer Gynt, based on Henrik Ibsen's play with music by Edvard Grieg and choreography by Stevenson, opens the 2012-13 season with a four-performance run at Bass Hall, Oct. 19-21. This full-length narrative work, which Stevenson debuted in 1981 (and which the company describes as "the bad boy of ballet"), then moves to Music Hall at Fair Park for four performances, Oct. 26-28.

If Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker, a required work for all major companies, has become a bit familiar to you, there's good news. TBT will offer an "all-new production" of this beloved Christmas classic that promises to dazzle. The mice will dance and the snowflakes fall for 16 performances at Bass Hall (Dec. 7-23), after eight presentations at Winspear (Nov. 23-Dec. 2).
