Bontle Modiselle shares how dancers are looked down upon. The talented actress , media personality and dancer Bontle Modiselle went on twitter to share how dancers are looked down upon and mistreated in the entertainment industry.
Bontle was fuming and calling out to members of the SA entertainment industry to stop looking looking down on dancers and not giving them the credit they deserve. “Dancers don’t get the credit they deserve. You’re meant to stay in everyone else’s shadow. Stay small. Be just a dancer. But damn, I’m so proud of the dance community!
“Some of your fav entertainers today come from dance, have transitioned & become household names respectively,” wrote Bontle.
She went on to share how she has had enough of performers being put in the same box as dancers she said they are oftenly labelled as dancers as well. She went on to say “Very rarely do you find a dancer who is one dimensional but folks aren’t comfortable with them being more than what they know you as.
“So any dancer who gets out of the ‘you’re just a dancer’ limitation and becomes more than that, deserves their flowers,” tweeted Bontle.
