20 year wait for dancer pensions
by Sally Bramley for The Stage

Ballet dancers will face years of financial crisis when they retire, following new government plans to stop them drawing a pension before 55 - 20 years after their average retirement age.

Equity, which includes dancers in its own pension scheme, has protested against the proposals.
