    Seeing Things
         If you miss
    Tobi Tobias's column in New York Magazine, take heart. Tobias is writing the same always knowledgeable, often acerbic, and beautifully phrased pieces here.

    The Ballerina Gallery
    Jorgen Wilhelmsson's collection of photographs and biographical information on virtually every ballerina who ever put on shoes.

    Ballet Alert!
    An online newsletter for those who love ballet
          Articles about classical and neoclassical ballet; archives from the newsletter Ballet Alert!, and an active message board with more than 140,000 posts.    Welcome to the site about all things ballet and dance in the world and the UK in great depth
         The first major web site devoted to dance on the Net, has an enormous data base of reviews, interviews and calendar listings, a monthly magazine, and an active postings page. Mostly, though not exclusively, about dance in the U.K

    Ballet companies
         A huge collection of links to ballet and dance comopanies around the world.

    Choreograph Net
         "Originally proposed sometime during the last century to be a forum for artists who have something to do with movement and movement creation, attempts to consider choreography in a very broad sense, so broad indeed as to include all processes of arrangement and creation. Consequently this site is dedicated to everything that spans or encircles contemporary choreography, dance and/or culture.

         "An inclusive site for for ballet, modern and all forms of performance dance."

          Another online magazine, this one from Paris, in three languages (French, German, English). Calendar of events in  Europe, reviews, many of Paris Opera Ballet, and interviews.

          An almost dizzying number of activities are offered here, mostly aimed, it seems, at dancers and teachers..  Dozens of message boards, each aimed at a specific type (under 13s, men who dance); a chat room; downloadable art; advice columns; links to links, and more "activities" than we've had time to try.

    Dance Films Association
         Includes a database of "dance films and videos in current distribution in the U.S., and includes videos in circulation around the world," as well as information about DFA's events, including its annual Dance on Camera Festival.

    Dance Insider
         "The online source of next-day reviews of dance performances." Overnight reviews of ballet and modern dance performances, especially in New York, but from other cities as well.

    Dance Links
          The first collection of dance links, hence its title. This is a very comprehensive list.



    The Dance Pages of Estelle Souche  
          A very rich and personal site. It's the kind of site you work through slowly; the treasures are hidden beneath a list of topics. There's history here, and a photo gallery, information on companies and dancers--"you choose," as Mle. Souche puts it.

    For Ballet Lovers Only
          A site devoted to the Kirov and Bolshoi ballets, with original photography, news and commentary by Marc Haegeman.

    The George Balanchine Foundation
          Information about Balanchine's choreography, the Balanchine Archive project, other Foundation projects.

         News, features, interviews, performance info about dance in London.
