Patricio Reve OND 23 cover

The October/November/December print issue of Dance Australia is OUT NOW and packed with essential reading!

Why are Cuban dancers so amazing? Our cover features Queensland Ballet Principal Artist Patricio Reve, one of three charismatic Cuban dancers we profile in this issue. We ask them for their training secrets.

Speaking of charisma, the ballet world was shocked when Artistic Director Li Cunxin and his wife Mary Li announced their early retirement from their leadership of the Queensland Ballet. Matthew Lawrence, the company's Ballet Master, pays tribute. 

Shaun Parker is another charismatic dance leader who has been taking his inspiring works around the world. He talks to former dancer Luke Forbes. 

We are thrilled to introduce a NEW regular advice column on nutrition and mindset. The writer is Lucy Christodolou, a former dancer who is now a qualified nutritionist. Her experience in both fields gives her a unique insight into the way dancers think and the challenges they face. Her first column is on how to Make the mirror your friend. 

We are proud that, like Lucy, so many of Dance Australia's writers are former or practising dancers. For example, in this issue freelance dancer and occasional choreographer Belle Beasley has written a lovely article on the pair behind GUTS Dance in central Australia.

Is veganism a sustainable diet choice for dancers? Editor Karen van Ulzen grills dietitian Joanna Shinewell.

The Nobel Prize winning American writer John Steinbeck once wrote that "Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts". Well, we have no argument with that. In this issue we have a special section devoted to dance teachers. There is an article by Michelle Dursun exploring the rising interest in dance classes for adults, and a series of interviews with teachers called The Future Makers. These stand alongside the REGIONAL HEROES feature, which highlights the contributions of regional schools - teachers from country towns which tend to get overlooked in our city-centric media. The four teachers featured in this section were chosen from nominations invited from readers and sent in from all over Australia. To all those who were nominated - congratulations! Your communities love you!

All this and heaps more: results of the Sydney Eisteddfod and Ballet Teachers Workshop in Victoria, Sydney Dance Company's Linda Ridgway Gamblin profiled and gorgeous pictures from the West Australian Ballet.
