Hideous dancing

Meryl Tankard from the Sydney Dance Company doesn't like "So you think you can Dance"
she thinks its hideous:

NETWORK Ten's hit reality dance program has been dismissed as "hideous" by one of Australia's most respected choreographers.

Former Australian Dance Theatre director Meryl Tankard says the performances on So You Think You Can Dance Australia are so awful they shouldn't even be considered dance.

"It's like a fast-food version of dance,'' she said today.

Although conceding the popular show had increased public awareness of the artform, Tankard urged people to go to the theatre if they wanted to see real dance.

How much government grants did you get this year Meryl? At least the TV show doesn't have to bludge money of tax payers. Silly elitist.
