Wow this guy sounds like he has everything under control. *sarcasm* I am talking about the man in the article... Definitely not gonna get involved with that argument from the last few pages.. This is such a sad story. There is a degree of trust in teaching dance and taking lessons. You trust that you are entering a safe and productive relationship. When people abuse that trust so that they can violently make a point (or act on their sexual urges as another poster added), this situations are horrible and a great blow to dancing. Opinions should never be shared in ways that hurt other people, physically or emotionally. My thoughts go out to that instructor. I hope he has a smooth recovery and isn't psychologically afftected.
