Rumors,

Dr. Taurus Hines did earn a Masters in Education and is finishing a Doctorate in Education, which is unusual for a professional dancer.  I could guess it is about a power trip but I don’t know.  Back to how he got hired.  Rumor has it that he knows something about someone high up – like a secret they don’t want to tarnish their reputation.

they get what they want, he gets what he wants (a job), and the students suffer.

this, of course is a rumor.  I am more inclined to believe Dr. Hines is just pure evil, maybe a sociopath or narcissist and maybe he is an expert at manipulating people to get what he wants, while at the same time torturing others.

in the end no one knows.
