    Oh my goodness. Those outfits are more revealing than the ones in the original video =/

    Maybe times have changed? When I was that age (15 years ago) I was wearing poofy tutus and tapping to Shirley Temple songs…

  2. Ashley says:

    They are terrific dancers, but they should have done something much more age appropriate.

  3. Amanda says:

    There’s no doubt those kids are talented but what kind of parent decided that a Moulin Rouge-esque bikini was a good idea for a bunch of seven year olds?

  4. Jen says:

    Wow! Those girls are AMAZING! I wonder what they want to be when they grow up?

    I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

    This just breaks my heart. So many adults today are so defiled, and now they are taking away our childrens innocence and purity. I hate to think of which of these girls will develope an eating disorder.

    Thanks for pointing out the blame is on the parents. WTF are parents thinking these days? Are they trying to raise oversexualized children with low self esteem?

    Wow…I am really really disturbed by that. I don’t even know how to feel about it. It’s beyond creepy. I remember a few years ago seeing a window display in a kids’ shop with outfits involving a leopard print mini skirt, tight t-shirt with “I’m No Angel” and knee high black patent high-heeled boots. The shop didn’t make clothes higher than in an age 11.

    I feel sorry for kids these days who are competing in dancing and sports similar to dancing. I used to take figure skating lessons and competed for a few years. When some of the girls started to wear their skating outfits a bit too skimpy for competition a dress and conduct code was created that didn’t allow for bare midriffs and suggestive moves. Also judges started to mark down when a girl, or a drill team, had used “Barbie Girl” and Madonna songs for the umpteenth time.Once a girl who looked no older than eight, skated to “Like a Virgin” , and she probably had no idea what the lyrics meant. At least I’ve noticed that figure skating competitions still have such dress codes, and hopefully coaches are watching the lyrics of music for kids’ skating routines. There should be dress, conduct, and music codes for competitions of dance as things are going too far now.

    Oh boy. This is awful! Completely sends the wrong message to young girls – not only the girls performing, but younger girls in the competition as well as any younger girl that watches it.

    The girls in this video are so obviously talented! It’s a shame that their gifts weren’t shown off in the same way that their “booty-popping” skills were. This video made me really uncomfortable, honestly. I was in awe of their talent, but I think the costumes are too revealing and the moves are too risque for eight year olds.

    The blame is on the parent, for sure. But WHO CHOREOGRAPHED THIS?!?!?!

    In the heartbreaking, disturbing yet incredible novel, “We Need To Talk About Kevin,” by Lionel Shriver, the protagonist makes a list of reservations she’d had about motherhood. Number three: “Other people. (PTA meetings. Ballet teachers. The kid’s insufferable friends and their insufferable parents.)”

    Big time disturbing but pretty much explains why our youth nowdays are messed up. One has to wonder what their parents and the people who organized the event (female version of NAMBLA perhaps??) were thinking or lack thereof. I am very grateful I was raised in the 70s. Life for a kid was much easier then.

  12. Miss Liz says:

    Oh Jesus. The lead girl (all of them really, but her in particular) seemed to have some ballet training under her belt. I can’t help but wonder what happened to little girls in tutus doing clumsy renditions of Swan Lake or adaptations of Disney movies.

    Though if this seems outrageous, just step outside around 7:00pm on October 31st.

    *Sigh*

  13. Alex says:

    I dare even be so bold as to say that our society is getting very close to a moral revolution, and it does not look like it’s tilting towards good and honest values

  14. Michael says:

    The parents who do this things to their kids should be ashamed.
    They, themselves are robbing their children’s innocence.

  15. Shelley says:

    I couldn’t watch this, it’s just horrible. What the fuck is wrong with these parents.

  16. My-Chikorita says:

    When I was eleven (which is quite a bit more mature than seven), a group of girls did a dance routine for the talent show tryouts. They were wearing normal clothes, and the song/dance wasn’t anywhere NEAR as inappropriate as this, yet they weren’t allowed to perform since the teachers said it was too inappropriate.

    And that was only six years ago!

    Also, it annoyed me how only positive comments were allowed on the video…

  17. FElix says:

    Really sad. The sexualization of children is getting worse. How could the parents think that it was alright for their young girls to even wear something like that?
