Why do I feel like I’ve committed a crime by watching this…..

No 10 year old should be able to move their body this way and, if they know how, they should be more covered up when they do it.

have you ever seen childrens dance competitions? … that’s exactly what they wear. Watch Dance Moms on Lifetime or whatever channel – this is the norm.

The clothing being “normal” is NOT an argument for it being okay… Yes, they do wear those awful clothes in dance competitions. Kids have all the time in the world to grow up, this dance and clothing was not age appropriate, plain and simple!

When did modesty become the most important function of clothing?
June 18, 2013 at 5:55 PM
She is terribly talented!!!! BUT… whoever put her in those bootie shorts killed her entire routine. A little girl should not have her shorts basically the same length as her underwear would be EVER but especially not when she is going to be spreading her legs every 10 seconds or so. Her parents should be ashamed of themselves.

The is not New Way Vogue, that’s a drag dancing, jazz & wacking all mixed into one routine it’s cute though just not New way!!!
June 18, 2013 at 7:11 PM
Guilty hearts speak the loudest. There’s nothing wrong with her outfit (pretty standard for dance competitions). She’s super adorable, and VERY talented! I hope to see more of her!

porn at this age, pure and simple, sorry
June 18, 2013 at 10:15 PM
Really? Porn? This is porn? This is dancing? a Form of expression? How dare you insinuate that they are using this little girl for sex/pornography…I guess when girls dance at a young age they have to limit themselves to ballet…and when boys do ballet its gay….stop stereotyping shit…if she felt uncomfortable doing it she wouldnt have but instead she wanted to and i see why..this fucking routine if FIERCE!!!! and she is an amazing dancer at such a young age and can only get better from here…

Thank you for your perspective on this. The reality is your very right, if a boy does ballet or jazz, or realistically ANY form of dance at a young age he is labeled “gay.” What worse is we call someone gay, insinuating that being gay is a BAD thing. In response to the negative comments, Kaycee does solo’s in Ballet, Jazz, Hip-hop, Tap, etc. She is a well rounded dancer, and also works on a professional level. I’m not speaking ” so I hear”. I’m speaking as one of her dance instructors. This little girl is the sweetest child, and loves dance. Period—END of Story !

Sexualizing this dance routine is a blatant misogynistic projection. If you’re uncomfortable with this video, perhaps you should re-evaluate your perceptions before telling a young woman she should limit what she wears and how she moves.. Why? So she doesn’t turn on creepy old men? Guess what? Those men are going to be pedophilic no matter what she is wearing or how she is dancing, so how about we cut the part where we shame the child for “asking for it”. Pfft..
June 19, 2013 at 11:01 AM
Uh, no. This isn’t victim-blaming and this is not misogynistic projection. This is a 10-year-old using the dance move called “pop your cooch.” Y’know why it’s called that? Because you shake your vagina around. This ten-year-old child is, indeed, performing a sexual dance routine, and there is nothing normal about a ten-year-old popping her cooch on stage. She isn’t a woman. She is a child. Did I point out yet that she’s ten years old?
June 21, 2013 at 2:25 PM
wow speaking on something you know NOTHING about. That’s interesting. I am one of her dance instructors (she does Hip-hop, ballet, acrobatics, jazz, tap, and contemporary). None of these styles are stripper, sadly you see what you want. The reality is when this was choreographed, it was done to music that WAS NOT sexual in nature or lyrics in an attempt to prevent such comments, the moves are HIP-HOP moves… People speak on dance styles they know NOTHING about… its really sad…then again, I guess that doesn’t matter, people will always look for ways to bring others down or speak on things they know nothing of. However, I respect your freedom of speech, though I cannot agree or condone the inapproriate comments made.
June 21, 2013 at 2:41 PM
of course you’re defending the move “pop your cooch”; you wouldn’t want anyone thinking you taught a ten-year-old to shake her vagina around on stage, would you? I mean, she’s totally not shaking her vagina, she’s just waving her crotch around! that’s totally different! there’s absolutely nothing sexual about the adult-oriented dance move where you spread your legs, project your hips, and gyrate! pushing your genitals out farther than your face while wearing daisy-motherfucking-dukes is totally innocuous!
(oh, by the way: copy and paste is lazy.)
June 21, 2013 at 2:47 PM
I don’t have to defend myself, I didn’t choreograph it… However, I do defend her as one of my students & by artistic freedom. I don’t have a problem with the choreography. Let me ask you something, have you ever even been to a competivite dance competition ? Starbound, Nexstar, iHollywood ? If this dance here makes you uncomfortable, then do yourself a favor and DONT look up ANY other competitive dance solo’s. This is by far one of the least provocative ones. Reguardless its dance, & no one who did this particular choreography, had such perverse though process going on. Clearly, the preception is in the eye of the on looker.
June 21, 2013 at 2:49 PM
so you think it’s okay to put a prepubescent girl in daisy dukes and teach her to pop her cooch?
June 21, 2013 at 2:52 PM
if the song was “pop that” by French Montana and the choreography was using that, I would agree with you 100%. It would be innappropriate. However, the music used is NOT sexualized in ANY way, so I cannot agree with you. The moves are refrenes to early FULL out hip-hop. I’m completely fine with showing your referenes and examples to help you with clarification, however, If your mind is set its set.
June 21, 2013 at 2:55 PM
oooh. okay. a different song means it’s totally different. she can be wearing next to nothing and waving her bits around, as long as it’s Beethoven it’s not sexual. okay. whatever you wanna believe. I’ll keep my kids away from you.
June 21, 2013 at 2:58 PM
right when we were almost have a civilized conversation. reguarless it makes all the difference. Dance is like talking, the way you say something, how you say it, and the look on your face as well as body language can all be different depending on the message. If what she wears bothers you, don’t EVER let your kids take ballet, they wear even less so that while learning, their joints and muscles can be seen so correct alighnment can be taught.
Anyhow, I’m done, have a good day =)
June 21, 2013 at 2:59 PM
yes, but see, in ballet you don’t pop your cooch.
June 21, 2013 at 11:28 PM
Let’s be honest with each other here: dancing is inherently sexual. That’s why religious fundamentalist groups forbid it. Who here really thinks children shouldn’t be allowed to dance? I don’t think children should be sexualized and objectified, but they have bodies just like the rest of us. Don’t put this girl down because she has mastered her body in a way that makes you uncomfortable.
To watch her dance, anyone can see that she’s proud of what she’s able to do do, and she should be. Not many people are able to express themselves the way she can. Some people can only express themselves by going on the internet and picking on young people…

(by the way: nobody said she isn’t talented. she’s great. she’s super-fit, has rhythm, and knows how to work it. y’know what, though? popping your cooch in daisy dukes is not something a 10 year old should be doing.)
May 22, 2014 at 10:38 PM
You obviously know nothing about dance. African traditions and the African-American vernacular spawned from them. Who told you that that dance move was called “pop your cooch?” Was it a professional dancer, choreographer or anyone at all knowledgeable about African/African-American dance? My guess is no.
Now. I DO agree that the costume is a little risque. Had she been wearing pants we probably would have nothing to say…well I wouldn’t.
May 22, 2014 at 10:48 PM
hahahahahahaah what the hell? This is a white girl on a white-dominated competition circuit in an American context.
it might be an established fact that Black culture created the music and dance scenes known today, but queen, that’s been a minute. SHE AIN’T AFRICAN. she is not dancing in an African context. y’all can try to take her out of the cultural context she is performing in all you want, but my argument stands, even still: this is a child performing adult dance moves culled from American hypersexualization. I wouldn’t bat an eye if it was Miley or Beyonce. a ten year old? BAT. BAT.
May 22, 2014 at 10:50 PM
And white girls NEVER get taught by black people, huh? You know, you’re right. You know way more than I do. I stand corrected. Argument over. *walks away humbled*
May 22, 2014 at 10:57 PM
I don’t know who taught her, with the exception of Iam, and he’s brown. According to his comment she’s had multiple teachers, and that’s clear: she’s incredibly talented, and has a control over her body anybody of any age or gender could be jealous of. I do not discount her talent or her teachers’ ability.
However? Y’might wait until at least puberty to start teaching mating rituals.
June 19, 2013 at 1:01 PM
Great dance moves. This girl has some serious talent and clearly has dedicated her time to dancing. However, a tube top and short shorts aren’t really necessary, are they?
June 19, 2013 at 1:45 PM
Well look at that, I guess parents are already preparing their daughters for the stripper poles. Its a shame to know that a pole is most likely in this girl’s future. Shame on the parents, keep your children young!

ive loved her rtoutine since the day i saw it! good song choice too 🙂
she must have great instructors. xx
June 19, 2013 at 6:31 PM
what i would like to see..is a picture of the fitness and actually ..shape and size of those people making negative comments…active..positive…atheltic this young gurl could probably run a mile in half the time of you fat slobs
June 21, 2013 at 3:35 AM
Clearly her dancing speaks louder than her outfit fact of the matter is she was EXTRA FIERCE and she owned that stage! Her routine was executed perfectly and that’s all that matters she’s a dancing dynamo.
June 21, 2013 at 10:27 PM
WOW a ten year old should NOT be gyrating… There are pervs out there. She was spreading her legs open and in a boob top at 10. THIS ISNT RIGHT
