Posting Links to YouTube videos of young dancers (minors): Not permitted due to privacy concerns, as well as safety concerns.

Ballet Talk for Dancers has always been very serious about protecting the privacy and 'real world' identity (as much as possible) of all of our members. However, we try to take special care in promoting the protection of our teen members' privacy. Our concern in this regard extends to protecting the privacy of other young dancers who may not be members of BT4D, but who may be associated or acquainted with a BT4D member. As non-members, they may not even be aware that their identity or privacy has been breached, whether intentionally or unintentionally by posts here on BT4D. Therefore, we take seriously our responsibility to not encroach upon their privacy.

In keeping with our privacy policies regarding the young dancers, we do not permit the linking of YouTube videos of young dancers. It is all too easy for the young dancer's identity and/or location to be discovered via those videos using simple Internet search skills. We will not encourage the dissemination of personal information of ANY young dancer for any purposes via our Board. This has been a long-standing policy of the Board and does include YouTube videos, photographs, websites, etc.

Moderators will remove the links to these types of YouTube videos.
