"Dance is best understood by the most sensitive, and scholarly of humanity. " Such arrogance is appalling...honestly.
Uuummmm, first of all your statement is a matter of opinion and we all have different opinions, that is what is so great about the arts, we can express them through whatever artistic medium we like.
Second of all, what do you mean by the most scholarly of humanity? People who are above average in intelligence? People who have studied different topics more than others? People who have more natural talent than others. If so, this is an extremely dangerous way of thinking, and one that will greatly limit your own interpretations of what you choose to experience in dance. I know of many people that feel the same way as you, like dance is something that only the aristocracy can understand and enjoy, or unless you have a certain set of moral values and background/education you just won't get it. VERY SAD INDEED.
For what it is worth, here is my opinion
Dance is best understood by all human beings who want to experience artistic expression through body movement. It is one of the most primal instincts that we all posses, old, young, rich, poor, whatever, and it does not mater what your education, background, understanding of technique, use of vocabulary or any other elitest point of view you want to list. Artistic interpretations and critiques are different from person to person because we all have different influences in our lives.
Such arrogance is appalling...honestly.
Such Arrogance is Appalling you say, rrrrrright, I have never experienced any arrogant words or phrases from artists I have worked with over the years < / sarcasm >
OK, so this is off topic, WHEN IS CD GETTING SPELL CHECK???? I don't feel very scholarly without spell check
