That's very cool. I'm big on the idea of mentor/mentee relationships - there's so much to learn from someone who's been there already. Often our relationships with teachers or significant (in our individual lives) choreographers have elements of mentorship, but it's not institutionalized or formalized in any way. <P>Are there any similar programs for people who are further down the food chain?

Good question, Priscilla. I would think this sort of thing happens on an informal, on-going basis, does it not? Or am I being naive here?

Hi Azlan. Yes, I agree it does happen in an informal way, but I wonder what a more organized or planned approach to mentorship would be like. For my job I've recently been doing some interviews with new K-12 teachers and administrators who were involved with a mentorship program. Hearing about how differently structured participation (more planned out, less planned out, types of correspondence and contact, etc.) affected the success of the mentorship was really interesting, so I've been thinking a little bit about situations where it's a formalized agreement.

Ther are some examples in the UK. The Resolution! season in London for new and developing choreographers has tried a mentor scheme and David Bintley (AD of Birmingham Royal Ballet) mentored a piece by Akram Khan and Mavin Khoo a couple of years ago.<P>I don't have any info. on the success or otherwise of these schemes.
