Stepping in the right direction

Mention dance in New Zealand and more often than not Malia Johnston’s name will pop up. Her experience stretches far and wide, from WOW, to working with Rodney Bell on Meremere. Malia was awarded the Creative NZ Choreographic Fellowship in 2013. Her latest project involved working with the cast of Billy Elliott, the musical, including one of her lead boys who had never danced before. Malia talks about giving everyone in the cast the confidence to shine.
