On the one hand, they’re all very good dancers. On the other hand, they’re all very good dancers. A little too good.
Maybe if they were wearing tutus or were less agile or didn’t have such great extension or couldn’t sync their steps so well, like we see in most local dance recitals, it would look cute. Nice turns a la seconde double pirouettes. Just wish I didn’t feel bad about watching them do it.

“See, this is what I want. I want something really burlesque. You know, bare midriffs. It shows off the pelvic thrusting really well. And bra tops, hot pants, over the knee fishnets, elbow length gloves. Black and red. Oh, and can you get them in a size 6X?”
I don’t even want to think about the Humbert Humberts out there who are watching this on a loop. It’s like the reality version Little Miss Sunshine.
