Caroline Miller is well known in the dance community through her publicity work at the South Bank Centre and Sadler's Wells. I was always impressed with her energy and the way she looked after the press, including CD. since leaving Sadler's for her current publishing job she has remained a regular visitor to dance events, indicating her love of the art form.

DanceUK is a valuable part of the dance infrastructure over here and we look forward to continuing the good relations we maintain with this organisation, which is well known within the professsion and almost unknown outside.

Congratulations to Caroline from all at CriticalDance.
