ARTS dance & fashion PRIMA BALLERINA South African silver medal for ballet prodigy B allet West pupil Uyu Hiromoto is showing no signs of slowing in her pursuit to becoming a prima ballerina with a silver medal in the seniors at the prestigious South African International Ballet Competition in Cape Town. Originally from Yokohama, Japan, the third-year degree student was awarded the Royal Academy of Dance’s highest award, the Solo Seal, last year while also reaching the finals of the BBC Young Dancer of the Year competition. Gillian Barton, principal of Ballet West, said: “Huge congratulations to Uyu. Winning the senior division silver medal at this important international competition against competitors of the highest calibre from across the globe doesn’t happen without many years of dedication, discipline and hard work - not only from the dancer but also from our teachers at Ballet West.” Before moving to the UK, Uyu trained at the Kudo Ballet School, where she achieved a distinction in her Royal Academy of Dance exams and reached the finals in the 2014 and 2015 Genée International Ballet Competitions. A IS FOR ARMANI A public school in Japan has been forced to apologise to parents after pupils were harassed in the street by passers-by due to their new high-priced uniforms made by Georgio Armani. Taimei Elementary School in Tokyo’s wealthy Ginza shopping district gained international acclaim when they introduced the new £550 uniforms earlier this year. But after insisting the expensive togs were befitting the local community, the school have now had to employ security guards to protect students who have become the target of abuse from strangers and tourists. Uniforms are not compulsory in Japanese public schools but are socially held in high regard. 5.9% According to a study conducted by The Stage, less than 6% of drama school teachers working at the leading 13 drama schools in the UK are from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds. None of the schools were found to employ more than 10% of staff from BAME backgrounds. REEGAN, 6, HITS THE RUNWAY A pupil at Cwmfelin Primary in Maesteg, Wales, is having a fabulous time walking the runways of some of the world’s most glamorous fashion shows – and she’s yet to turn seven! Reegan Davies hit the catwalk at London Fashion Week at the start of the year and quickly followed that up with work at further shows in Milan. Mum Lisa told Wales Online: “She loves to act and perform and has also been attending a drama school since she was three. As parents we are so proud of her and she truly is beautiful inside and out. She takes everything in her stride and sees it as an opportunity to meet new friends and has fun wearing clothes.” 44 // HWRK MAGAZINE // Spring 2018 hwrkmagazine @hwrk_magazine
