A Chinese kindergarten principal has apologised after allowing a pole dancer to perform on the school’s opening day.

American writer Michael Standaert, who is based in the southern city of Shenzhen, was surprised when he and his wife took their children to the privately run Xinshahui kindergarten in the Bao’an district of Shenzhen on Monday. There, on a stage in the courtyard, in front of rows of children aged 3 to 6, all first-day-ready in pristine white shirts and neatly pressed black shorts, a woman did a routine that would not be out of place in a downtown strip club.

Many Weibo commentators said it was not an appropriate spectacle for a kindergarten. But not everyone disapproved.

“This is probably something to encourage the dads to pick up their kids,” said Weibo user @Janson_Mou. “If my daughter’s kindergarten is like this, I will go pick her up every day.”
