An article from our friend ME Hunt in the Contra Costa Times.

MARY ELLEN HUNT: FOOT NOTES
Web videos ensure great ballets not missed

I'M LATE AGAIN. In recent months, I've become even more of a procrastinator than before, and I lay the blame squarely at the feet of YouTube.com, the online video hosting service, where anyone and everyone can post a digital video.

It's where you can watch a Korean guitar whiz sweep his way through Pachelbel's Canon, or sound bites of politicians making career-demolishing comments. It's where you can easily lose whole hours of your life, five minutes at a time.

And in the YouTube world, dance is as big, if not bigger, than politics and rock music. True, much of it is dance with geek appeal. With more than 31 million views, the most popular video of all time on YouTube is Judson Laipply's six-minute, hilarious "Evolution of Dance," and Napoleon Dynamite's dance scene is not much further down the list with more than 6 million views.
