Erik Aschengreen 75 tomorrow

Recommended Posts


The famous Danish ballet critic and ballet historian Erik Aschengreen, lovingly called "Doctor Dance", will be 75 tomorrow, August the 30th.


Erik Aschengreen has done more for Danish ballet than any body else: as a reviewer in the national paper Berlingske Tidende, as founder of and teacher at Dance Studies at the University of Copenhagen, as a teacher of dance history at the balletschool of The Royal Danish Ballet, and not least as the author of a series of books on ballet, especially the handbook "Balletbogen" has been an invaluable companion for the balletgoer for decades. Aschengreen often appears on television, too, where one of his biggest talents come to it's right: he is extremely entertaining - and at the same time never compromising with quality.
