Re: "vulgar." On other threads, I've always had questions about the use of this term, and not only because it is so subjective. It's an shorthand insult, not a descriptive or analytical term. When I see it, I feel I've learned more about the writer than about the work he or she is evaluating.
Many substantial works of art have been called "vulgar," or "common," or "trashy," by someone, especially at times of transition in style and content. I'm sure that a VERY long book could be compiled consisting solely of wrong-headed accusations of vulgarity over the centuries.

That is interesting--I've had the opposite experience! Dancers who can fouetté for days, kick themselves in the head, &c, but they forget about the drama, or even personality.
Yes. Dancers who turn and turn and turn and grin and grin and grin.
