DANSOX is hosting a guest lecture with Alastair Macaulay (New York Times Chief Dance Critic) on 'Fred Astaire.'
DANSOX provides a major forum for dance scholarship in Europe. It promotes dialogue between prominent academic disciplines and the worlds of dance theory and practice through a series of workshops and functions. Many of these events, funded by TORCH and other sponsors, are held at the Jacqueline du Pré Building (JdP) and are directed by Professor Susan Jones (Fellow in English of St Hilda's College and former soloist with The Scottish Ballet). DANSOX explores the ways in which the role of choreographic practice reveals its essential contribution to innovations across academic fields, theatre, and performance. Its patrons are Dame Monica Mason (artistic director of the Royal Ballet) and Sheila Forbes CBE (former Principal of St Hilda's College).
