Bring on the dancing girls

by LYNDSEY WINSHIP
the Guardian

Last week, former ballerina Dame Antoinette Sibley announced that the future of British ballet looked bleak, pointing to a lack of home-grown principals in British ballet companies: two out of 16 at the Royal Ballet, two out of 12 at English National Ballet and three out of 12 at Birmingham Royal Ballet. She also quoted what she called "shocking" figures from the Royal Academy of Dance showing a 67% drop-out rate of students at age 10-11.

From The Shanghai Star

Rhythmic Middle-Eastern music, entrancing belly dancing - and this is just one of the dance classes in Jazz du Funk, a modern dance studio in Shanghai. Since it was established two years ago, the studio has experienced a steady increase in the number of students. Expats have always made up the bulk of enrollment.

Dancing feat
By Kevin Berry for The Stage

The SLP College was founded in 1991 and has been producing young dancers ever since. Kevin Berry finds out how the school’s thorough teaching methods are taking students all the way to the West End

Two years ago the chorus for The Good Old Days at Leeds City Varieties had a complete change of personnel and choreographer. In came six performing arts students and a teacher from the Studio La Pont College just outside Leeds.

What an astonishing effect they had. A section of the show that had hitherto been quite weak was suddenly strong, vibrant and exciting. These youngsters sang and danced superbly.

Hip-hop dancing is all about the beat

by CANDICE LEONE
the Shreveport Times

"People were calling (LSUS) requesting a hip-hop dance class," she said. "(They) asked me if I could teach it, and I said, 'Sure.' "

Twelve people showed up on the first night of class to soak up a few hip-hop tips. Brandon Rowell of Shreveport, the lone male participant, said he enrolled in the course to brush up on his dance moves.

School focuses on dance from 'inside out'
by JOANNE BOECKMAN for the Des Moines Register

The opportunity for dancers Emery and Melissa Uyehara to run their own dance school just sort of danced up to them.

"We weren't actively looking. It just fell into our laps," said Emery, who owns Capital City Dance Center in Urbandale with Melissa, his wife. They opened it in August.

But her teacher, Aree Sahavejjabhand, recognised the little girl's latent talent and asked her mother to bring Kaew back to class.

Novices Inspire Experts to Dare
by JACK ANDERSON for the New York Times

But "Quiver" is the first work in which he has used ballet movements en pointe. Although a few sequences looked self-conscious, Mr. Petronio successfully devised sharp assertive ensembles that bristled with nervous energy.
