PHONE 327-3191 First dance pnference scheduled TORONTO (CP) Balleto- manes, dancers, dance teachers and promoters from -across Canada will converge on York University -June 1J-16 for the country's first National Education Conference. Grant Strata, director of fork's dance program, said in recent interview that 200 par- cipants are expected Opposing factions expect a confrontation as classical ballet evotees vie with modern dance xponents for attention and pos- sible grants from government gencies. The two groups would be at aeh other's jugulars, Mr. Strate said, were it not for the act that York University is .onsidered as neutral ground welcoming both factions. Since dance at York is not de- pendent on Canada Council grants and is not affiliated with Uiy professional dance com- >any, an atmosphere of neutral- ty can be maintained, Mr. Strate said. "This is a great time for dance in this he said, citing the McKinsey Report to the Canada Council which found ;hat the audience for ballet and dance is increasing twice as ast as for any other per- orming art. Three broad areas that the conference will discuss are the education of dancers, the role of dance in education and eliciting )ublic response. The conference is open to anyone for a fee of In addi- tion to discussions and demon- strations, films and videotapes will be shown each evening.

TOPS IN COMEDY TV STARS CLOWNS The Wildest Show On Wheels All New For '73 Festival scene The Stratford Festival, Stratford, Ont., began its 21st annual season of drama this week. In this scene from "Taming of the Anni Lee Taylor plays Kate, and Alan Scarfe is Petruchio. Actress praised by drama critic TORONTO (CP) Anni Lee Taylor was praised today by drama critic Herbert Whittaker of The Globe and Mail for her performance in The Taming of the Shrew as the Stratford Na- tional Theatre of Canada open- ed its 1973 season. Mr. Whittaker said that Miss Taylor was the first actress to "fulfil the understudy's dream and take over the-star role on an opening in Stratford's 21 years." He said it "was no easy task" playing the role of Kate be- cause it is "one of the worst written title roles in all Shake- speare.'1 Miss Taylor replaced Pat Gal- loway, who fractured an ankle several weeks ago and will not return to the stage for about three weeks. Mr. Whittaker described Miss Taylor as "small and sultry, very well fitted to Desmond Heeley's busty designs of cos- tumes." iELMUT CLEUSEN for ARTISTIC LANDSCAPING HARDY TREES and SHRUBS COMPLETE LINE of ANNUALS and PERENNIALS FREE ESTIMATES All Landscaping Finished in Your Choice of Bark Chips or Landscape Rock Phone 327-9730 In Association With Western Canadian Ltd. "True, Miss Taylor has the advantage of playing opposite her true-life husband, Alan Scarfe, the Petruchio of the Mr. Whittaker wrote. "Perhaps this encouraged her to give in to his stormy, harsh suitor, knowing a better way to handle him. "But it is also possible that Miss Taylor is discovering what most Katherines do, that Shake- speare put her on the course of bad temper, but didn't supply her enough wind to sail it." Mr. Whittaker added: "Scarfe was an imposing Pet- ruchio. He is a manly fig- ure at all times, towering above the rest of the cast, a figure to hold centre-stage at Stratford with ease." Dave Billington. entertain- ment editor of the Montreal Ga- zette, wrote: "The cast threw caution and subtlety to the wind and at- tacked this venerable tale o: man's conquest of guileful anc tempestuous woman with rare gusto. "The entire evening lackec the tension normally associaiec with opening nights and grand occasions. From the first mo- ments, entertainment and hu- mor were the obvious aims of the production. And it suc- ceeded. Victor Stanton of the Kitch ener-Waterloo Record said Miss Taylor "brought much needed straight interpretation to a pro- duction that was so abundant in farceurs." paramount NOW SHOWING AT P.M.
