Inside Dance magazine Launches Podcast!
Taylor Bradley and Alex Yonkovich to Host
Premiere Episode Launches January 27, 2021
ATLANTA, Ga. – January 18, 2021 – Inside Dance, today’s magazine for dancers, teachers and studio owners alike, is excited to announce the debut of its podcast, “Inside Dance with Taylor and Alex.’’ Hosted by professional dancers Taylor Bradley and Alex Yonkovich, the new podcast delivers on Inside Dance magazine’s mission of providing an all-access pass to the world of dance with a fresh take on the latest and greatest buzz, exclusive interviews with superstars from our community and inspirational perspective and guidance for dancers of all levels.
The podcast collaboration brings together Inside Dance magazine’s print, video and digital initiatives with Bradley and Yonkovich’s Booked & Stressed project, a podcast that debuted in November of 2020, and branded “an informative conversation about the entertainment industry.”
“As Inside Dance was working to develop our podcast for a January launch, I became enthralled with listening to podcasts from all around the world of arts and entertainment. I came across the Booked & Stressed podcast and was intrigued to listen, because I had previously seen Taylor and Alex perform in world-class productions and was mesmerized by their performances. I hadn’t even made it through the entire debut episode when I knew that we had to team up with them! Their engaging personalities felt so much like the spirit and energy of Inside Dance and the topics they covered aligned perfectly with what we cover in the magazine and our other outlets,” said Christopher Korotky, President & Publisher of Inside Publications. “It’s been an absolute pleasure digging in with this dynamic duo and our incredible team to develop a product that we know our readers and the dance community as a whole will be tuning into week after week!”
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to join forces with our friends at Inside Dance! I am passionate about sparking an industry-wide conversation to foster a positive sense of community in this beautiful field we work in,” noted Bradley, who made his film debut in the productions Footloose, Cinderella Story: Once Upon A Song and Vampire Diaries. “I hope to encourage my colleagues of all ages and experiences to support each other through this unprecedented time for the entertainment industry. ‘Aspire to inspire before you expire.'”
“I am beyond excited for this new venture with Inside Dance magazine, said Yonkovich, who most recently wrapped up her five years as a full-time ensemble dancer and soloist in The Beatles LOVE by Cirque Du Soleil. “Since I was a little girl, I flipped through dance magazines endlessly, constantly looking for inspiration, tips and tricks on how to improve my performance, and investing in the stories of artists that I look up to. It truly has shaped me and now I am so thrilled to have the opportunity to inspire the next generation of dancers, foster conversations to improve our community, and reflect on this art form that I love so dearly!”
