Teen Arrested in Iran Over Instagram Dancing Videos

Iranian teen posted these videos of her dancing. They got her arrested
She has posted over 300 videos with her dances to national and Western music. She was among the many Instagram users arrested by authorities for posting videos on the social media platform in recent weeks. Yet, she has amassed thousands of followers for her moves.
Social media users have shared their own videos and messages of support for Miss Hojabri using the hashtag #dancing_isn't_a_crime.
Following the arrest of Iranian teenage dancer, Maedeh Hojabri, on Friday and her confession to breaking norms, a number of women in the Islamic Republic have posted videos of themselves dancing in solidarity with Hojabri. I did not want to encourage others to do the same.
One filmed herself dancing in a park in Tehran, though she was wearing a headscarf, which breaks strict rules set by the Islamic regime.
Another woman wrote, "I'm dancing so that they [the authorities] see and know that they can not take away our happiness and hope by arresting teenagers and (girls like) Maedeh". I didn't work with a team, I received no training. The problem? Maedeh Hojabri lives in Iran. "I only do gymnastics".
"For centuries people have uncovered themselves and danced and this religion wasn't harmed", Iranian cleric Mohammad-Reza Zaeri wrote on his Instagram page.
Iranian authorities have previously cracked down on dancing. Another post showed a man holding a birthday cake and dancing, with the comment, "dancing isn't a crime".
