Study – Learning A Little About Dance

The British government improbably conducted a study into the state of dance. Predictable? Funny? Ok, but the researchers actually took the time to learn something. “They heard about the funding ceiling encountered by mature choreographers, the difficulty in moving up from small to larger-scale productions that British and foreign theatres want to see. They concluded that the Arts Council’s woolly and obscure processes were at fault, that the Council should focus on excellence and leave social agendas to Government departments.”
