A California-born, dance-devouring critic who has written for the Village Voice for more than 40 years has joined the dynamic online dance-sphere with a blog that is certainly worth a look.
Deborah Jowitt, who moved to New York in the mid-’90s to join a company run by Harriette Ann Gray, said she discovered a love of dance criticism in the 1960s and has been engaging in it in various forms since. Her broad experience in the field is evident: balanced insight joins hands with a unique voice and the result is a nice blend of good reporting and thought-provoking criticism.
So if you’re looking for another arts publication to add to your arsenal, check out Jowitt’s DanceBeat. It takes a person in a certain situation to know dance and language well enough to write about the art of movement, and it is evident that Jowitt is one of these people.
