Dance Wing – Japan

by on Jul.01, 2009, under Articles

dw49For those of you who speak Japanese, or more importantly can read it; Volumes 49 – 51 of Studio Himawari’s magazine ‘Dance Wing’ is featuring three articles I was asked to write for its readers.

The magazine is packed full of information, adverts for dance-wear, shoes, jewellery, photo galleries of the hairstyles and fashions worn this year during the Blackpool Dance Festival and much, much more. I speak very little Japanese and am unable to read their beautiful writing, but it’s set out in such a way that even I (a non-dancer) can pretty much understand.

It also contains a delightful half hour DVD presented by Anne Laxholm, (former European Ballroom Champion) called ‘Keeping it Human’. The lecture and demonstration by Anne was filmed during the Ballroom Dancers’ Federation International UK Congress 2009.

The articles I have written are (as you might expect) about all things ‘Empress’: Our involvement with the Blackpool Dance Festival, the album ‘Always & Forever’, and amongst other things; an insight into what happens behind the scenes and offstage during the Festival.

‘Volume 49’ is available now and looks great (it oozes Asian culture). The articles have also been written in English for those that can’t read Japanese. If you’d like to see for yourself, please follow the link to Dance Wing where ‘Vol. 49’ should appear online shortly.

Best wishes,

Ashley Frohlick
