Parents and Concerned Adults

Protect Children in Dance

The hypersexualization of children in adult costumes, choreography, and music in dance will not stop until parents and concerned adults take action nationally & locally. Share nationally using the action items below. Share locally by educating a dance studio on the dangers of hypersexualization; read our Step by Step Guide to Educate Dance Studios about what the research on hypersexualization shows.

Believe it or not, some dance studios unknowingly create choreography, lyrics, and costuming that exploits and portrays young girls (and
sometimes boys) as sex objects. With respectful conversations integrated with research & knowledge, you can make transformative change in a local dance studio. Our free resources will give you the insight and confidence you need to advocate for healthy, age-appropriate children’s dance.
