Jacqui Cesan on getting boys into dancing

From Nine To Noon, 10:10 am on 13 October 2014

Tempo Dance Festival is this year honouring Auckland dance teacher, Jacqui Cesan for her career spent helping young dancers, especially boys, achieve big things. Jacqui's three sons are all professional dancers and one is the director of the dance company she founded in 1998, Boyzdance2. She talks about how to get boys into dancing, how to get them to stay in classes as they get older, and the importance of comprehensive dance education. Jacqui also opened her Auckland school, The Dance Studio in 1999, and has taught NCEA dance at Mt. Albert Grammar School since 2008. She trained in ballet, jazz and Latin dance, spending several years studying overseas before returning to teach in New Zealand and Australia.
