Meet Marquee TV, the New Netflix for Dance
Yes, we all love it when Netflix offers up a few tasty dance movies. But there’s a new streaming platform in town promising a veritable feast of delicious dance goodies—which means nights in with your studio crew are about to get a whole lot sweeter.
just officially launched in the US, UK, and Canada, allowing users to stream all kinds of gorgeous arts content for about nine (US) bucks a month. Its current dance offerings include stage performances by—take a deep breath before diving into this list—New York City Ballet, Nederlands Dans Theater, Alonzo King Lines Ballet, Paul Taylor Dance Company, Mariinsky Ballet, Bolshoi Ballet, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, Paris Opera Ballet, Batsheva Dance Company, San Francisco Ballet, and Mark Morris Dance Group, to name JUST a few. There’re also dance films featuring iconic ballerinas Sylvie Guillem, Wendy Whelan, and Darcey Bussell. (And it’s not all dance stuff, for the record: Your music, theater, and opera friends will want to get in on this, too.)
Not that there’s anything wrong with watching Center Stage for the 93847th time, but many of the productions featured on Marquee.TV are new works that are still showing or touring. So the service is a great way to stay up-to-date on what’s happening in dance.
Visit marquee.tv to learn more. And international friends, stay tuned: The service is supposed to roll out across the world in 2019.
