Prestigious award for dance lecturer

19 March 2007

UCT dance lecturer Dr Eduard Greyling made history when he was awarded the Fellowship of the Institute of Choreology (FI Chor) - the first recipient in seven years.

The fellowship is the highest award given by the world-famous Royal Academy of Dance in London, and recognises "outstanding and exceptional service" to the academy's Benesh Institute and Benesh Movement Notation. It was last awarded in 1999.

Greyling is only the fortieth dancer honoured with the fellowship since it was first made in 1966. The veteran dancer was rewarded for his "tireless work" in teaching Benesh notation at UCT and his "pioneering work" on recording African dance.

Greyling was delighted. "I feel particularly honoured as this award was last given seven years ago."
