This autumn's Animated magazine, produced by the Foundation for Community Dance, has an article entitled 'Mark of Excellence' and the Mark it refers to is none other than Mark Barber (on the individuals programme) of Anjali (on the organisations programme)!

The article charts Mark's changing role within the company, and focuses on his current role as Associate Director (Education). Mark says of his role: 'My job is to make Anjali more famous and better funded... Also I teach and make people excited about dance...'.

The company comment on how genuinely structuring a learning programme for Mark has meant them looking both inside and outside the company. For example, Mark is currently on a long term placement with Oxford Playhouse for one or two days a month to help strengthen his networks within community dance and develop credible career options for him within dance in the future.
