The Majorette Dance Industry Needs Regulations - NOW!

I recently posted on our social media feeds my belief that the majorette dance industry needs regulations. After receiving a majorette dance video for posting consideration with content that was very age inappropriate, that was the last straw. I have always considered myself a person with an open mind to all dance styles with a liking to many current songs, trends, and traits. However, there is a disturbing trend that has now become too common with overt sexualization of our girls inclusive of the wardrobes, makeup, song lyrics, facial expressions, gestures, and movements with majorette dance. Some of the content is too salacious as we live in a time where sexual predators have high access to the social media images of girls who may not know what they are indeed doing, due to leadership negligence. Recently we  received a video with girls dancing in a parking lot to the song “WAP” for posting consideration. As only a grown person should know what the lyrics mean, no child should be dancing to these lyrics or even repeating them. Parents and coaches who are allowing this, it is not cool! It is not cute, hot, sassy, or no way near classy. HOLLA’! will not promote this type of content and ask that industry leaders for majorette dance address this NOW!
