Dance and Dancers was a magazine about ballet. The magazine was founded in 1950 by publisher Philip Dosse and editor Peter Williams.[1] John Percival edited the magazine from 1951 to 1995.[3][4]

The publishing company, Hansom Books, folded in 1980 and the magazine was then relaunched under new management in the following year and continued publication until 1995.[3][4]
