Protect Children in Dance

Providing education and resources to end exploitation through hypersexualization of children in adult costumes, choreography, and music.

NO CHILD EXPLOITED

During the last decade, there has been a cultural shift from healthy educational children’s dance to harmful hypersexualized children’s dance by using adult costumes, sexually suggestive choreography, and music with inappropriate sexual themes and/or lyrics. Our organization is dedicated to raising awareness and providing dance educators, parents, and concerned adults with the resources and education needed to take action and end this kind of exploitation occurring through hypersexualization of children in dance.

“The art form of children’s dance has been hijacked.”

Mary Bawden, Founder of DA:NCE
