Iranian women post videos of themselves dancing in support of arrested teenager

Iran detains teenage girl for posting dance videos on Instagram

"It wasn't incitement, I didn't want to encourage anyone, I didn't have an objective", she said. Many of them have been performing dance forms like the Australian shuffle on the streets (video below).

This is not the first time dancers in Iran have been arrested for dancing.

"I had some followers and these videos were for them. I did not work with a network", a crying Hojabri told TV on Friday.

The teenager, however, was detained by the Iranian police for those same videos.

Hojabri has around 300 videos on her Instagram account, many of which show her dancing in both Iranian and Western styles. "I only do gymnastics".

Dozens of videos are being shared by Iranian women on social media dancing in support with a teenag girl who was arrested for posting dancing videos on Instagram. "We praise and admire her as a leader to let our voices for freedom to be heard".

The Iranian government has strict rules governing women's clothing and dancing with members of the opposite sex in public is banned, except in front of immediate family members. Another post showed a man holding a birthday cake and dancing, with the comment, "dancing isn't a crime".
