Tonight On The #LetsTalkDance Tweetchat: Is Dance Really The Poorest Art Form?

The recent article on The Huffington Post website, “The Poorest Art; Dance And Money” has sparked some major controversy within the dance community. It has raised the eyebrows of many, while speaking a personal truth for others.
“I’ve come to a conclusion about dance and money: if dancers did not sometimes sleep with rich people, American dance as we know it would cease to exist.” – Lightsey Darst 
Although much of what is stated in the article is true, I have some issues with certain aspects of the article (part I and part II), which I will discuss at a later date, either in a blog post, or on my radio or tv show.
Tonight, we as the international dance community,  will be discussing the topic of whether or not dance truly is the poorest art form, and what we can do about it, on our weekly #letstalkdance Tweetchat.
