Harmless or Horror Show? Little Girls’ Controversial Dance Routine to ‘Single Ladies’

Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” is a catchy tune, but it was a children’s dance to the song that really caught our eye. No, we’re not talking about the baby who bopped around to the song in his diapers.

We’re talking about the video below, where five girls who appear to be about 7 or 8 years of age perform a controversial dance routine to the song. Check it out:

Once this video went viral around the iVillage office, the opinions on its appropriateness were sharply divided. “I was horrified,” said one mom of twins. “All I kept thinking was, 7-year-olds in red-hot pants should not thrust, bump or grind—while a crowd roars approval.”

Others’ only takeaway was to laud the girls’ talent. “These girls are extremely talented,” said a mom of one, who grew up competing in dance competitions. “A great deal of dedication and hard work goes into what you just saw. I don’t know why comparisons are being made to strippers and grinding? I certainly don’t see that nor did I even think of that for a second.”

So iVillagers, what do you think? Harmless dance routine or a parental horror show?

  2. I think theese girls can do whatever they want. if they wanna dance like that, it means they can dance the way they want. The way wear, i think its right any way. Their dance moves is the best thing that they ever done so far. I do not think a puinshment would not be fair to them
