Do it now -- your business and employees will thank you for it. "We were a new business to the Kapiti Coast and thought this would be a good challenge for the team. We found the entry process was a good way to review some of our goals, processes and ideas. It made us look at certain aspects of the business you wouldn't normally focus on and from that we were able to make changes or improvements where necessary. Initially it looked like a mountain of work, but once you got into it it was relatively easy, plus there was really good support available from Jeff of BOOST Business Coaching."

Photo: PHILIP MERRY Jonathan Selvadurai wants to dance his way around the world and the former Paraparaumu College head boy is get- ting closer to his dream with a new pro- duction at the New Zealand School of Dance in Wellington. Selvadurai, 20, is in his third year of contemporary dance at the school and has choreographed a dance piece for student-driven collaboration show Sketch. The show has 10 pieces linked together to create one flowing, pretty insane'' show, said Selvadurai. I'm in five of them. Three of them are back to back so that's a bit full on, but it's good fun.'' In the work he choreographed, Shred- ded Strands, he wanted to explore fra- gility. It's based around a metaphor of when we lose support during tough times. If you're going through an illness or trauma or something like that, losing the support and connections that you need to get you through.'' I work with five girls with long hair and use their hair to represent rope and the rope fraying is a kind of the meta- phor of losing something and being fragile.'' Other dance pieces, between five and 10 minutes long, covered ideas such as lack of communication, not being able to reach full potential, atoms and hypnosis. The students wear black casual dance gear and dance on a blank stage highlighted with animated sketches, based on photos of them dancing, by Paul Bradley, which are projected on to the floor and backdrop. The dancers have been working for 15 weeks and had visitors from the industry critique their work. Selvadurai hopes to head to Europe to learn different contemporary styles and bring what he has learnt back to New Zealand. Meanwhile, he is juggling six days of dancing a week and work as a part-time waiter. Sketch, May 20 to 28, Te Whaea National Dance and Drama Centre, Wellington. Tickets, $20, $16 students and seniors and $12 for under 12s, from nzschoolofdance.ac.nz or at the door.
