"In today’s increasingly diversified dance world, it is likely that the next Nijinsky or Nureyev will not come from ballet but from hip-hop or tango"
"arguably the dance form of the future, hip-hop dance theatre"
It is interesting to read some of the prejudice and uniformed replies to the article, reflecting the high art/low art paradigm that exists through the perpetuation of the Western Art Canon. Here is one example:
"I am pleased that the "serious" end of culture and dance in the UK takes up modern music, but I have my doubts that hip hop is the way to go for ballet . What seems like agility can when looked at more closely seem a lot clumsier than ballet might require, and crucially, hip hop artists lack the years of discipline and training needed for ballet . Nor do Iwish to see ballet politicised . Whatever next? Swan Lake with machine"
