Sweet!

It would be great if they eventually have an online only subscription, even a .pdf of their print version.

Tangentially, my copy came in the mail today -- I'm still surprised by the color photos...

Agreed! I have reached the point where I do most of my reading on some electronic device or other and would happily abandon print altogether if I could. I have zero nostalgia for ink on paper. I've let more that a few subscriptions lapse because the publisher has elected not to make a digital version available, and I am done with dragging paper all over the city with me (and then piling it all into the recycle bin ... ) I'd actually pay more for a digital-only version at this point.

PS: Nice, clean site! And I'm thrilled to see Bijayini Satpathy and Surupa Sen of Nrityagram on the Fall 2014 cover!

Fantastic news. This wonderful magazine was incredibly hard to find if you did not subscribe.

The new site is neat and has some truly choice articles from its archives offered -- my favorite is the interview with Francis Mason, who tells how he collaborated with Balanchine on the "Stories of the Great Ballets for Doubleday and how when he was a US cultural attache he brought ballet, modern dance, the New York school of painting, Martha Graham, and Isaac Stern during the Cold War behind the "Iron Curtain" to Belgrade, the only place it was possible under Stalin to see any alternative to Socialist Realism. there are many wonderful articles in there, but this one shows the mind of the editor at play --

What a great story it is!

This is great! Although I do look forward to receiving my 'little big ballet book' each quarter. I read a fair amount online but I cannot abandon the printed word. I love the physical book too much.
