Those of you who have read the Olivier Awards nominations article in The Independent, will have noticed that the dance and choreography sections do not even get a mention.<P>If you feel strongly about this omission of the art form you love, you might like to consider sharing your views with the Editor of The Indie: <P>feedback@inuk.co.uk
