Hide Profile

Tobi Tobias, who conceived and implemented this project, is an American dance writer who specializes in classical ballet. She was the dance critic for New York magazine from 1980 to 2002. Associated with Dance magazine from 1971 to 1998, she wrote criticism, profiles, and feature stories, editing the journal's criticism from 1976 to 1983. She has written extensively on the Royal Danish Ballet and its Bournonville heritage. The centenary Bournonville Festival in Copenhagen in 1979 catalyzed her desire to record, through the creation of oral memoirs, significant aspects of Danish ballet history that were likely to remain unwritten and thus eventually lost. Her earlier work in oral history includes participation in the Oral History Project of the Dance Collection of the New York Public Library at Lincoln Center for its entire six-year duration. For a decade, Ms. Tobias taught dance criticism in the Dance Department of Barnard College, Columbia University. She is also the author of numerous books for children. In 1992, she was knighted by Queen Margrethe II of Denmark.
