"Mini-poll on criticism and prejudice"
 
  
The new poll "Is the best dance criticism naturally prejudiced?" is a spin off from Ismene Brown's interview with Clement Crisp:
http://www.ballet.co.uk/magazines/yr_01/dec01/ismene_b_int_clement_c.htm

Clement is very clear that being a critic is all about your prejudice... so what say Ballet.co visitors I wonder? As ever do feel free to add your thoughts on the subject in this thread.....

   Have had to vote yes rather than yes yes because to be a good critic you must be able to put your prejudice aside.

   I would rather say : a good critic needs "personality" instead of 'prejudices'... This word sounds too negative to me.....a bit narrow-minded !
Out of his personality a critic can ventilate his 'ideal' dance-standards...
but with an open mind please !

   I think that whatever you call it - prejudice or personality a critic will always be influenced by what they feel and think about a dancer or a performance.

Dance is one of those topics people can get really emotionally involved in. So no matter how professional a critic may try to be in their criticism or praise, their personal view of the particular area will always come across.

Personally I think that's a good thing.
