About

 

Delving into Dance is a podcast of conversations with dance makers and lovers, sharing interviews that are both intimate and thought provoking.

Through a diversity of views, experiences and practices, we can better understand the role dance plays in individuals’ lives, while demystifying and opening dance up to new audiences. What can those who don’t regularly engage with dance learn from the artform?

Started in 2016, Delving into Dance has grown and grown to reach over 9000 people globally.  Publicists from around the world are seeking to put forward individuals for interviews, with 3-4 requests coming through a week.  

These interviews help engage preexisting dance audiences as well as find new access points for future audiences. To view how the interviews are being used by companies and industry players, visit the engagement section of the website. With arts journalism suffering around the globe, now more than ever platforms like Delving into Dance are critical for archiving the experiences of dance makers. Participants have responded incredibly positive to being interviewed. The acclaimed dance journalist Deborah Jowitt said: "I'm struck by how intelligently you formed your questions".
