I can’t watch another second of just this dance clip 😮😳🤢🤮
It’s bad, really bad, terribly really. Watch a clip and see how your stomach turns. And how your heart aches.

Cuties on Netflix

The objectification and sexualization of children in the dance world - is so blatant, sad, and sickening to me.

With the Netflix documentary and it’s surprising backlash- at least more light is being shed on this

There is a blatant war on the innocence of our children!!

As a dance teacher I can tell you how difficult it is to find modest recital costumes. The catalogs are filled with pictures of costumes overly inappropriate and mildly. An insidious sewn curve of material here and there to make the costume more “feminine” more adult, more curvy.

I grew up dancing- it wasn’t this bad in the 80s and 90s, but for sure I regret going along with the flow of my high school dance team.

We danced seductively to suggestive music and no one said anything.

My heart mourns those actions I took part in, so I resolved to do better for my daughters and offer a dance program that promotes modest dance- family friendly moves music and costumes.
And joyful heart dance began out of wanting something different than this... what you now see on Netflix.

Parents have other options for dance classes. We don’t have to settle for the destruction of our children’s innocence in the name of dance education.

It’s ok to say this isn’t ok!
