Inappropriate

Am I alone in thinking this is completely inappropriate?

These girls are 8 and 9 years old!

  1. I thought it was terrible and read the girls are as young as 7. I do not know what bothers me more the outfits, the dance moves or the combination. But it is appalling, and they should have been disqualified from the competition and the parents reprimanded. We have gone a long way from leotards and kids incorporated haven't we.

  2. Wow...very disturbing! Dance has changed so much when I was doing it.
    My niece is dancing to the song "3" by Britany Spears. Which is, in my opinion, an inappropiate song for any 8 & 9 year olds to dance too. If you don't know what that song is about just look at the title and you can probably put 2 and 2 together. I nearly flipped out when I heard that.

  3. I completely agree with you. I can't even watch very much of it. It breaks my heart to know people think it's okay to dress a child that way and have them perform moves that I don't even like seeing adults do. Just my opinion.

  5. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. This is totally rediculous. Did you also watch the parental reaction to the backlash? Talk about ignorant parents!!! To think that some of those kids are only a year older than my oldest son. These are definitely girls I don't want my son to have much exposure to. It's just so sad that the girls are going to be products of the failure of parents to establish boundries.

  6. Yeah, I was thinking this very same thing when my then 7 year old was in a recital last year. It's nuts.

  8. No you're not alone. That should be considered child abuse and pedophilia. Thank you for sharing for the sole purpose of allowing me to see that Paul Mitchell supports this. I'll be enclosing a link to this video in my letter to them informing that I will no longer be purchasing their products.

  10. Sorry, double posted. I'm just so angry about this. I just cannot fathom what these parents are thinking. It's mental and physical abuse of the lowest groveling form.

  12. Sad. This is what our little girls (and boys for that matter) are up against. I wrote a post about Preserving our childrens Innocence not to long ago. I am going to link it if anyone is interested in reading it. http://amomentcherished.blogspot.com/2010/04/preserving-their-innocence.html

  13. Way inappropriate! Their parents obviously aren't taking them to church where they should be singing the praises of Jesus instead of running around like..........

    um....... well I go to church, so I won't say. hehe

  16. I saw this on GMA this morning. I was mad at first thinking HOW could someone let their kids dance and dress that way. THEN I thought about it. These girls are GREAT dancers at their young age, if you have ever been to one of these competitions this is the norm. And most of all NO we would not want that to be out daughters, but in the end those little girls parents are ok with this and the little girls don't know they are doing anything "wrong".

    I don't like to judge people, that's not my job :) It could be worse, these girls could belong to parents that aren't there for them.

    Have a blessed weekend.

  17. You are not alone in thinking this is just wrong. Yikes.

  18. This is so sad. Sadly, the more things like this happen, the more people will accept them and the less they will be shocked.
    This isn't about them being great dancers or not- it's about little girls wearing revealing outfits and dancing in a mature way that is not appropriate for their age.

  19. I didn't even watch the video, but seeing the beginning image thing is enough. That's just sad and completely inappropriate. Dance is becoming more and more sketchy and worldly. The allure of dancing in that way is fairly strong, and at that age, I'm sure that their parents are thinking, "they're so young, it won't matter." Which, is completely contrary to the truth.

    It's sad and disturbing and most definitely inappropriate. It makes me cringe. They're practically wearing nothing (and even though I didn't watch it) you can tell that they're using, excuse me, flaunting their bodies in a worldly way in order to receive attention. Subconscious or not. It's completely wrong. And sick. And disturbing. Just the way that they're moving--they'll have people attracted to them at that young age. It's so sad and SO wrong.

  20. Sory I have to disagree. I do not see anything wrong. They are performers and those are costumes. The moves are Not at all bad in any way. I think they were very appropriate. They are not grabbing their ass, or shaking there bobs or any thing like that. If you notice they actually incorporate ballet into the dancing.

    I thinkg there are more things in this world to wory about than kids dancing. Instead of looking at the negitive in this try looking at the positives. They love to dance and its keeping kids out of trouble. They are not doing any thing sexual or explicit so lets move on. I think they did an awesome job. its not easy doing what they did.

    But thayt is my thought.

  21. This video has gone very viral, so I've seen it all over the place. But I do agree...those costumes are inappropriate. The girls are talented little dancers tho, sad that their parents didn't just put their foot down about the costumes, bad moves.

  22. It says the video has been removed, but from the image that was on the start screen, I can already say, INAPPROPRIATE!

  23. The video isn't working anymore, but I have seen it. Ummm, my 8 year old will soon be 9 in a few short days and I would never let her perform that way. I get it, they are doing something positive and staying off the streets. But that doesn't mean they should act like hoochies and call it performance. Little girls should be little girls, not grown women.

    I know there are a lot of people who don't see nothing wrong with it...I guess for me, it won't be my daughter. I don't need some creep checking her out thinking she's some hot thing to look at!

  24. I was doing a little blog hopping when I came upon your post. I was appaled at the parents this morning on Good Morning America. They implied this was just fine, just taken out of context. It's never appropriate to have little girls acting this way. That's the problem...we keep accepting more and more. Glad so many here feel the same!

  25. Wow! It's sad because you can see that they DO have a TON of talent. I'mmean really they are great dancers, but those moves ARE VERY SEXUAL! I used to work at a day care and there was on little girl (4) who you could tell got all her dance moves from watching MTV, it made me sick. Anyway, yeah, it's WAY inapropriate.

  26. This was horrible! What kind of parents allow their daughters to act this way and DRESS this way at such a young age? What happened to morals? And am I the only who worries about petiphiles {spelling??} watching such a provactive video???
