Dance critique is the act of producing an opinionated, written or spoken report about a performance dance (often ballet or modern dance) by a critic. The term may also refer to the report itself. As with other topics, a critique of dance may use its own technical language to convey what the critic has seen.
Most major newspapers cover the arts in some form and dance critiques may be included as a part of such coverage. Dance critiques are published in other types of media as well. For example, some dance critiques are published online, through blogs or websites.
