Education systems should encourage more dancers


Some of you may know that I am a massive fan of Sir Ken Robinson. I think he is intellectually funny and has a fresh but daring perspective on education systems.

(Tickets to see him speak in London at a RSA Event on How to Change Education-from the ground up  next month sold out within minutes =[)

Today, I came across a short video clip from 2006 of Sir Ken speaking at a TEDTalks on “Do schools kill creativity?” and always he did not disappoint, I had to pause the clip a few times so I could take legible notes:

As somebody who had to give up pursing dance professionally because it was not a “stable career path”, I empathise with thousands of young people who have and are given a similar speech and with those who feel inadequate  in school because they do not fit into socially constructed “norms” of education.
