Arohamai whānau, last month we used Dana Moore-Mudgway’s photo with Danya Linton’s bio. This is the correct information for Education Grant recipient Dana. Apologies to Dana and Danya!
My name is Dana Moore-Mudgway, I’m 20 years old and I was born and breed in Christchurch. For my study this year I was lucky enough to receive a grant from Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tō to help with my tertiary education. I have been taking dance classes since I was 3½ years old and in 2017 I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to pursue my passion as a career.
Last year I started my degree at Unitec, doing a Bachelor of Performing and Screen Arts majoring in Contemporary Dance. I am currently in my second year of study at Unitec and loving every second of it.
Once I complete my degree I hope to travel to Europe and learn from some of the best contemporary choreographers before coming back home to New Zealand to freelance and share my knowledge and skills with other aspiring artists.
