hmmm it's a cute costume, but it is,er, a bit risque. i don't actually think it would be as bad on a ten or eleven year old seeing as how theyre not as "developed"

I think it's inappropriate for anyone under the age of 16. I don't care whether they're developed or not - nothing can "hide" the fact that costume is highly sexualised.

Its definatly a nice costume and i really dont see anything wrong with it. I guess it depends what song they are dancing to and weather(sp?) the dance is "suggestive".

Cute costume, but not on that age. Anyone older doing tap in it will look awful with all the jiggling that will be going on.

Wow, 11 year olds wearing this?! Generally, I think this is a little inappropriate for any age but com'on...11 years old! If I was a parent of a dancer that had to wear this I would flip!

What are the dance teachers thinking! When they put kids in costumes like this. I've seen worse, but I wouldn't let my daughter wear anything too raunchy.

That would be 10000 times cuter if they wore a black or red leotard instead of the red bra! But I love that costume!

it is kind of inappropriate, i would have to see them on a 11 year old though to totally decide. like someone said, if they switched the red bra with a leotard, it would be pretty cute. my studio definitely wouldn't allow that.

Yeah, I don't think little kids should be wearing that. I still wouldn't want to wear that at my age because in my opinion, it's ugly anyway. And I like wearing clothes.

IMO at the age of 10, you should not be wearing anything like that. They should be dressed age stomaches, not that short a skirt, and nothing that looks like it belongs in a club.

What is the song they are dancing too? Whatever it is I am sure they coud have found better suiting costume. Besides - it doesn't even look good.

Ughh, the 'lady' wearing it looks very old to me, how would that even appeal to a dance teacher? *shivers*

That costume is hot! I want it! Lol.
But no... definitely not for girls that young. It's too suggestive, and honestly it would look much better on a someone in their twenties.

There are three different versions of this costume and a trio that I was in last year wore this.
I had the even more revealing costume that is pictured along side of this one in the costume books.

As for the age of the girls wearing it,
I don't think that's inappropriate....I've seen worse.

It just depends on how these girls look.
For an example,
Melody who was on 'So you think you can dance' wore very revealing costumes when she was ten years old.
If you've seen the photos, you know what I'm talking about.
But where she was so muscular and looked beyond her years, it looked perfectly fine.

Also, it has a lot to do with what their song is.
If it's a child-like song it might play out pretty well.

But if it's a very sleazy type of a song I don't really think that would work.
Even if the 11 year olds looked like they were twenty.

I hope this helps you out!

I don't know of any age or song or dance that would make this costume ok for me. lol. I think my dance teacher would have a heart attack if she saw this costume. can someone tell what company makes it so I can steal this page out of that book? I kind of like my teacher. lol.

Totally inappropriate.. however as they are only young and not developed i cant imagine it will have much effect.. no hips or breasts it will be probably look like a cute little school girls outfit with their tummy showing.. lol
