Dance Today Teacher of the Year 2014

Posted on March 7, 2014


teachIt’s back! Last year our very first Dance Today Teacher of the Year competition was a huge success, with hundreds of readers voting for their favourite dance teacher.

Pauline Mason, of Danceworks Devon, was thrilled to be announced the winner: “It was a very pleasant surprise to receive the award and I was amazed to know that so many people had taken the trouble to vote,” she says. “The response from my students has made teaching that much more rewarding.”

To vote for your teacher, get in touch by post, email, Twitter or via our Facebook page by May 1, telling us why you’d love to see your teacher win. The best reader nomination will win a free year’s subscription to Dance Today.

We’ll announce the shortlisted candidates and overall winner – the teacher with the most reader votes – in our June issue. The Teacher of the Year will win a specially created Dance Today trophy – a cover of the magazine starring them, a feature about them and their studio in the magazine, and a year’s free subscription to Dance Today and sister magazine, Dancing Times, plus a pair of tickets to a dance show (details to be confirmed) and a selection of dance CDs and DVDs, as well as unprecedented bragging rights!

Nicola Rayner was editor of Dance Today from 2010 to 2015. She has written for a number of publications including The Guardian, The Independent and Time Out Buenos Aires, where she cut her teeth as a dance journalist working on the tango section. Today she continues to dance everything from ballroom to breakdance, with varying degrees of success. Her debut novel, The Girl Before You, was published last year in paperback, ebook and audiobook.
