National Petition

Support the DA:NCE movement!
The intent of this national petition, endorsed by the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, is to raise awareness and educate the public about the exploitation of hypersexualizing children in dance.

At an early age, young children are often being taught how to approach relationships and how to approach intimacy in the wrong way. The art of dance should not be used to divert young children from healthy sexual development. We need to carefully evaluate the cultural choices that entice young children to be viewed as adults. We need to produce healthy boundaries in dance so that little girls and boys are protected relationally. Then, when they experience the beauty of dance, they can move as young children, not as adults.

Let’s make a difference together by signing this petition. Your signature can help us raise awareness and give a voice to end the exploitation of children through hypersexualizing costumes, choreography, and music in dance.
