Quick Reference

The oldest monthly dance magazine in current publication. It was founded in London in 1894 as the house magazine of the Cavendish Rooms, but was bought by P. J. S. Richardson and T. M. Middleton in 1910 and turned into a national periodical covering all forms of social and theatrical dance. It played an important role in the founding of the Royal Academy of Dancing. Richardson was editor until 1957 when he was succeeded by A. H. Franks, then by Mary Clarke in 1963. In 1956 the ballroom and social dance sections were moved to the Ballroom Dancing Times. In 1992 the company attained newspaper trust status and in 2008 Clarke was succeeded by Jonathan Gray.
