Sigh

They're not "dancing like Miley"
They are twerking and it was around long before Miley.

Someone added the "Miley Cyrus" lyrics to this video of the kids dancing.

People used to think that Salsa was nasty and the Waltz was too intimate.

Dancing evolves and in 20 yeas there will be another "forbidden" dance move...

Twerking was around long before Miley Cyrus made a fool out of herself with Robin Thicke at the MTV Awards (or whatever awards show it was). Twerking isn't a new dance; it's just newly popular.

There is a BIG difference between Waltzing and Twerking. Twerking (in it's latest iteration) simulates a sexual movement. It was almost EXCLUSIVELY used by strippers - making it clap, etc. and done while grinding up on the crotch area of a partner. I had a hard time not vomiting watching these YOUNG babies perform not just twerking but all around sexualized movements. As for the 'Miley' shouting - this was used to get these young girls 'amped'. They know Miley Cyrus, they've probably also seen the perfomance.

Hopefully this latest "dance" will soon disappear. I just get this picture of a dance where all the girls are bent over twerking and it's not a pretty picture at all. I wonder how many guys are going to want to take their girl to a dance only to end up looking like he's dancing with a behind. If they don't mind their daughters doing sexualized dance moves, they'd better off teaching them the Lambada, at least they'd look like girls rather than just a disembodied butt jerking around. There's a lot of dancing these days that really isn't dancing at all.

 Crazy. If grown women want to dance like this I don't see the issue. But children, heck no. That's just disgusting.

I can't see the video. It requires flash.

I found that parental twerking in front of young friends tend to put a quick stop to it....
