Exotic dancing has been drawing in some Toronto students for as long as board social work co-ordinator Janis Beach can remember - and she has been working with students for 20 years.For many, dancing is their entry point into the sex trade.

"The reason that they're doing it is for the easy money, and they're not really aware of the progression and the oppression of starting that cycle," she said.
