I’m a ballet dad although my background is classical music and opera…I needed to enhance my understanding and appreciation of ballet, to get a handle on what makes it all tick….and also to get a feel for the nitty gritty. I find ballet News gives me all that, without being at all pretentious. The sincerity and integrity of the writer shines like a beacon. Brian Ferguson

The exposure that Ballet News has given me as a dance photographer has been enormous… I meet people all the time who mention they first saw my images on Ballet News… Much appreciation! Dan Freeman TDFoto.ca

Cheryl’s enthusiasm, passion and commitment to bringing the latest news in the ballet world is first class. I have been a fan of Ballet News for a couple of years and find it a great experience in terms of being able to keep up with what is going on. I have had the pleasure of having a picture put on the Ballet News website to generate interest in what it take to be a male classical dancer and through Cheryl’s website it generated a lot of interest. Ballet news covers a broad range of subjects that go on in the ballet world from performances to nutrition it’s all there and all excellent information Sefton Clarke, Dutch National Ballet
