Our Story

Fjord Review is a digital dance magazine dedicated to publishing high-quality dance analysis, feature-length articles, interviews, wellness, style and photography sections. Online since 2012, Fjord Review has become a trusted name in dance, bringing together some of the finest dance writers and photographers from around the world. In 2018 we were nominated for a national Digital Publishing Award for General Excellence. 

And now we're in print!

The Print Edition

Fjord Review is publishing a limited edition print magazine in December. It'll have all the Fjord Review hallmarks - elegant design, insightful writing, and we hope you'll want to keep it on your coffee table long after you've read it. 

Sounds great. So what's in it?

  • So. Many. Words. On. Dance. Written by some of the best in the business
  • Stunning photography
  • Profiles and feature-length articles  
  • Spotlight on the dancers & choreographers shaping dance today

Keep an eye on our Instagram for behind-the-scenes as our campaign gets underway!

Eco-friendly production

Fjord Review is committed to environmental sustainability. Our printers in Berlin use eco-friendly materials and processes, and a limited edition run cuts down waste. Made in Canada, designed in Italy, printed in Germany, shipped to you!

 Amazing. So now we need your help.

As this is a limited print run, supporting this campaign is the only way to ensure your copy! Your support helps us maintain our standard of publishing, seeing that our contributors are paid for their time and work. Backers of $200 will be acknowledged in the print edition and online as key supporters.

 Gifts! Rewards!

Our super-talented network of contributors have pitched in to offer beautiful rewards for your generous support! Enjoy hand-crafted cards with your magazine by Australian artists Gracia Haby and Louise Jennison, a beautiful print of your choice from the magazine, and free international shipping.

Risks and challenges

The content for the first issue is ready, and we have already contacted our printers, who are patiently waiting for the green light once we get the funds. As we will be printing close to the holidays we are aware our distribution timelines will be tight, but we will be present to make sure everything runs smoothly. If everything goes as planned, the magazines and rewards will be on your doorstep in time for some joyous holiday reading.
