So, at school, they installed a new dance studio for the girls, gays and other effeminate people. They found the space by taking the crowded sandwich room (the dining room for the people with packed lunches), chopping it in half, making one half the dance studio, and expecting the same number of people to eat in a considerably smaller space.
So while they're adding to a subject with limited popularity at best, the Art department is festering away with only one full-time member of staff for every year group, and decreasing interest in Art due to poor teaching quality and poor funding for materials. Dance only gives you access to one future job, whereas Art helps you get jobs in creative design, media, animation, all of which are booming areas with more available jobs than in a lot of other areas right now.
This is my theory as to why this is happening.

You have a room for people to eat packed lunches? lololololololol. We just eat it wherever; in the canteen, in the quad, on the field, in a classroom, etc.

Well, people with packed lunches aren't allowed to eat in the canteen because it's too full from people buying hot dinners, and yeh, I guess more people are eating outside because of the good weather recently, but when it's cold, we need somewhere to go.

Man, that sucks. How overcrowded does it get? Like, not enough seats for everyone?
Get parents to complain ;)

I object to your implication that anyone who dances is female, gay, or effeminate.

I merely implied that he made the choice of Dance over Art because of personal preferences, rather than what people within the school were actually asking for. Any other implications you may draw from this are no fault of mine.
