Would you let your dd be in a belly dancing show at school?

My dd was in first grade it was soo cute. She goes to a global studies charter school where they learn all about different cultures.

Belly dancing? No, belly dancing is intended to be sexual and is not for children. And thank God no teacher/principal in my conservative town would think that that's a good idea.

I think that is awesome!  

Anything can be sexualized.  There is more to life than sex.

Sure.

I don't have an issue with belly dancing. It originally was intended for women to do for each other. They would get together and have fun with it, basically. It wasn't a dance intended sexually for men. Plus, it's great exercise. :)

 Belly dancing is actually not meant to be sexual. It is the Middle Eastern equivalent of a folk dance.

No. There are ways to teach children about other cultures then to give them crop tops.
