We in the UK are in an odd position in that 56 of our 59 constituencies in Scotland have become Nationalist and in England the Tory party rule us all. The Conservatives have little regard for the Arts and are keen on removing non-essential subjects in schools such as Dance and Music. How little do they understand.....

This will be my only blog ever about politics.

Would a music course tied to academic study of dance be beneficial? Discussing this with colleagues here. Interesting stuff!
