I came upon this video clip from the Canadian Sun News Program with Canadian interpretive dancer, Margie Gillis. It's hard to believe a reporter could be so disrespectful to the subject of her interview and, by extension, to the dance community as a whole. Some people have such little respect for the arts community; opposing an industry that, for the most part, is not for profit. Whether or not you enjoy interpretive dance, or dance in general, it is incredibly important to keep the art form alive. Reporters such as this put things in jeopardy. I'd like to see what the reporter makes in a year and compare that to the average salary a dancer makes in his/her entire career. Disgusting.
