Just the international success of the Dance Theatre stimulated dance journalism in Germany in the 1980s and ensured numerous new publications also on the book market, many of which were published by Florian Noetzel Verlag in Wilhelmshaven. Recently, the Klaus Kieser Verlag in Munich has made a name for itself with its carefully edited dance books. For a while, the Second German Television (ZDF) accompanied the development of dance in its series “Das Internationale Tanztheater”. In the meantime, the “Tele-Tanzjournal” informs about the development. The dance film series of the European culture channel Arte, with which numerous German television stations cooperate, gained special significance.
The important dance magazines include “Tanz Journal” from Munich under the editorial direction of Katja Schneider, a fusion of “Tanzdrama” and “Ballett-Journal”, and “Ballettanz” from Berlin under the editorial direction of Hartmut Regitz and Arnd Wesemann, a fusion of “Ballett International” and “Tanz aktuell”. However, due to economic problems, a large number of daily newspapers have considerably reduced their dance coverage in recent years.
