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 contemporary teacher at a summer dance school in London took me out (with a few other teachers and students) one night after the program was coming to an end and of course, proceeded to stick his tongue down my throat after a few drinks. It was unwanted, but he was my teacher so I just waited till it was over and said nothing to the school or anyone about it. I was 19 years old.
