It is quite apparent that the cultural dances of Africa,South America and the Caribbean namely Brazil and Jamaica, have landed in suburbia. The aerobatic hypersexual musings of black and brown cultures are causing jaws to drop and heads to turn at the raunch of it all. However, depending upon the environmental context these dances could be completely appropriate.
The perspective of appropriateness changes once taken out of the island envrions and transplanted into the conservative atmosphere usually associated with those less familiar with these types of movements. The freedom to express oneself,especially in the confines of sexuality often causes a fear among those who do not know its historical context or anthropological purpose.
Historically, many types of dances have caused pause among the conservatives of the time. There is no right or wrong in this instance, only the fact that young people were experimenting with an expression that has become more and more popular within the pop culture. Hula, belly dancing, and countless other dances have taken this course of skeptism.
It is very likely that no one is even aware of its origin. To understand lends new lenses to the ‘issue’.
Does it promote unwanted advances by unwanted sexual predators? Does it evoke solicitation? Is it devised to tempt a person to become overwhelmed with ‘bad’ thoughts?
If the masses keep their senses and develop a fortified stronghold than nothing will be able to breach their boundaries of moral struggle. However, in the charge of less developed filters the temptations associated could be very problematic. The obvious prevention is: TEACH .
