Dance and Drama Teacher
by JANINE OGIER for the NZ Herald

Q. What sort of training or experience do you need?

A. I did it the wrong way I think, as most people for secondary education get a BA or AUT dance course, the subject qualification first, and then get a teaching qualification through one year at teachers' college. I wanted the flexibility of being able to teach primary or secondary, so I did a Bachelor of Education and then specialist training. But that way, I am held back quite a bit on the pay scale.

Basketball players weren't the only ones nimble of foot who stood out for George Mason University in March.

Both dances performed by the George Mason dancers at the American College Dance Festival East Central Conference at Ohio State University were selected for the conference's gala program. It was the first time both dances by George Mason performers were chosen.

You learn more than moves at dance lessons
by KWAME KWEI-ARMAH for the Guardian

Kwame eventually showed up right near the end, dressed in a scanty yet colourful costume, revealing parts of his body he'd much prefer hidden. And at last I saw the true depths of his unhappiness. After the show, I apologised to Kwame, and he never returned to the Saturday classes.

A real Billy Elliot who swapped his football boots for the Bolshoi
by CHARLOTTE HIGGINS for the Guardian

Henry Perkins, of Yateley in Hampshire, briefly attended the Royal Ballet School when he was 11, but according to his mother, Sue Perkins, had "a terrible time". However, Henry has been studying recently in Clapham, south London, with Evgeny Goremykin, a former Bolshoi principal, who introduced him to the Bolshoi school and accompanied him on his successful audition in Moscow.

Students feel the good vibrations
by ELICIA MURRAY for the Sydney Morning Herald

The school, near Central Station, recently started offering classes designed for students with hearing impediments, and the rhythmic vibrations from two conga drums placed at the front of the class are a key part of the learning process. Students feel the vibrations through the wooden floorboards and rather than shouting directions over the din of loud music, the instructor, Ricardo Scheihing, communicates using sign language, with the help of a professional interpreter.
