Congratulations to all those who have been recognised in this year's Birthday Honours.<P><B>John Ashford</B> commands a lot of respect in UK dance and has made the Robin Howard Theatre (previously The Place Theatre) in London into one of the leading dance venues in Europe. He has also nurtured fledgling choreographers through the annual Resolution! Season. <P><B>Betty Laine</B> is a ballet teacher with a fine record for preparing dancers.<P><B>Ray Piali</B> is an important figure in South Asian dance. <P><B>Lea Anderson</B> is the Artistic Director of the Cholmondeleys and the Featherstonehaughs and has been a creative force in UK contemporary dance for many years. Her productions often have an emphasis on theatricality and humour. I really enjoyed 'Smithereens', her show from a couple of years ago inspired by Berlin Cabaret from the 1920.<P>Congratulations also to <B>Dorothy Stevens</B> and <B>Daphne HARRIS</B>. I have to confess that I have been unable to find out anything about these two recipients, who I imagine have made an important contribution to dance at a grass-roots level. Do tell us more if you know them.<P><BR><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited June 15, 2002).]
