Moving with a common purpose
by DEBORAH JONES for the Australian

Page is in a reflective mood at the moment. He looks at the AB's dancers and sees an adamantine physical discipline deriving from countless years spent in training, sometimes from the age of four or five. This has made him question the level of training now available for young Aborigines and to ponder whether Bangarra should have its own dance school. He knows the company standards are uneven at the moment despite the presence of some outstanding and highly experienced dancers.
