It took me a while but I finally found this video I saw a few weeks ago while watching the Spanish news. It’s a controversial video showing kids no more than 12 dancing to reggeaton very provocatively. After going viral many were left wondering what parents would allow their little girls and boys to dance like this. 

As a Hispanic woman I grew up listening and dancing to salsa, merengue, bachata, and samba. Latin America is very diverse and so is its music. All of the different types of music are meant to be danced by a man and a woman.  The dances are considered to be very sensual, romantic, and meant to be fun. It’s true when they say that Hispanics can’t do anything without listening to music. You shower, clean, cook, and work with music. It’s in our culture and perhaps in our blood to dance, but when do romantic moves turn into provocative movements? Where is the borderline?

It’s obvious by this video that these kids learn by watching, as do all kids. There are grown people in this video dancing along, yet the kids seem to be dancing closer and in a much more flirtatious and seductive way (check out the girl in 3:13). Judging by the kid’s expression I don’t believe they think they’re doing anything out of the ordinary, it’s just dancing to them. As a grown woman I think these kids are doing too much for their age, and what I find outrageous is that the grown ups and even the person filming this video aren’t doing anything to stop them. Call me boring, prude, or overprotective but my kids sure as heck wont be dancing like this!
