Britain’s Oldest Monthly Dance Magazine Extends Digital Archive Back To 1963

28 Feb 2022

Individual and institutional subscribers to Dancing Times now have fully searchable access to over 700 issues of Britain’s oldest monthly dance magazine, dating back to January 1963.

Dancing Times was first published in 1894 as the house magazine of Cavendish Rooms, London, a ballroom dancing establishment. In 1910, the magazine transformed into a national periodical reporting worldwide. The 59 years of content found within the pages of the digital archive covers all forms of dance, advocates the awareness of dance history, gives voices to leading authorities, encourages high standards of teaching and stresses the importance of dance in education.

Instant IP-authenticated access and remote access options are provided to institutions by the Exact Editions’ platform - whilst the advanced search function allows dance enthusiasts, teachers, and students alike to search for specific keywords and articles.

Editor & Director of Dancing Times, Jonathan Gray, commented: "We’ve worked with Exact Editions for over three years and have found them to be very successful in getting the magazine, with its unrivalled history of reporting on dance, out to a wider readership.”

Managing Director of Exact Editions, Daryl Rayner, said: “The back issues added to the platform offer a rich wealth of content that individual and institutional subscribers will be delighted to have access to.”
