The art of dancing, which has already been given a shot in its gracefully extended arm by the film exploits of Billy Elliot, received another boost yesterday when the government promised to set up a national agency to rescue dance classes from their "Barbie Doll" reputation.

I think this is a good idea - dance still seems to be a poor relation amongst the arts, even with the latest uplift in funding announced. National dance organisations that specifically work in an educational context (community & schools) seem to be way behind similar music and theatre organisations. But lets see how much freedom the organisation will have to respond to the needs of young people and dance artists - it might just make a difference
