The beauty and joy of dance is fast becoming sullied by dance groups that incorporate minors in their ensembles. Both female and male dance groups remain major draw cards in bars and nightclubs, but so disturbing is the age of some of the dance group members, who are clearly under age. To make matters worse, these outfits have modified their dances to include lewd and highly sexually suggestive acts using young girls and boys barely in their teens. Apparently as a cost cutting measure these outfits have resorted to employing desperate school drop-outs and children from poor backgrounds. And it seems that these groups are fast becoming popular not for their dance, but as rich hunting grounds for perverts and paedophiles.
