Microaggressions, stereotypes, double-standards, discrimination, unwanted come-ons, manipulation, isolation, bad jokes, and pithy comments: ABUSES OF POWER and SEXISM in the ARTS and in DANCE come in all shapes and sizes.

Using art as a backdrop is not an excuse.  Change the names, be anonymous, but don't let little perpetrations go unnoticed, no matter how big or small.

A choreographer chewed me out for 15 minutes in front of my entire cast because I missed a few hours of one of his rehearsals. He blatantly threatened to blackball me in the NYC dance scene by telling fellow choreographers and directors that I was unprofessional and unreliable. Meanwhile, the 5 boys in the piece had ALL missed MULTIPLE rehearsals and he never said a single word about it.
