Top dancers pointe the way

STU­DENTS at Su­bi­aco dance stu­dio The Grad­u­ate Col­lege of Dance have learned from some of the world’s best.

Bal­let grand mas­ter and Sin­ga­pore Dance The­atre artis­tic di­rec­tor Janek Scher­gen vis­ited with stu­dents at the col­lege this month, shar­ing his knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence.

The bal­let dancer and teacher also brought two of his prin­ci­pal dancers, Chi­hiro Uchido and Kenya Naka­mura.

The Grad­u­ate Col­lege of Dance di­rec­tor Dawn Weller said she had de­vel­oped a fruit­ful re­la­tion­ship over the years with Scher­gen and was hon­oured to have him at her stu­dio.

“It is a rare hon­our for some­one of Janek Scher­gen’s stature and ex­pe­ri­ence to come to Perth,” she said. “It’s price­less what was given to stu­dents and the ad­vice and sug­ges­tions he gave them.

“Sim­ply to have the op­por­tu­nity to work with an artis­tic di­rec­tor… it is the high­est level you can go in bal­let and it’s valu­able for stu­dents.”
