In the words of Billy Ray Cyrus, “It’s what people [their] age do.” But what about girls as young as FOUR?
As a dancer, I was not disturbed by the 7-year-olds doing a fun dance in tiny outfits to Beyoncé‘s “Single Ladies.” Has no one ever been to a dance recital before? Kids of ALL ages wear little sparkling outfits! Did Elisabeth Hasselbeck‘s comment about Erin Andrews‘ Dancing with the Stars costume really brainwash the nation, causing this big fuss about nothing?
I understand that to people unfamiliar with children’s dance recitals, it MAY be a shock to see 7-year-old girls on stage shaking their booty in tiny outfits, but if you search “dance recital” on YouTube, you’ll find videos WAY more shocking than the infamous girls dancing to “Single Ladies.”
In fact, that’s EXACTLY what I did to prove to some of our office members here at HollywoodLife.com that this dance was not that big of a deal. Check out this video of a 4-year-old’s her solo dance. Let’s just say: multiple costume changes and a chair is involved.
