There's been criticism about these dance numbers—namely that they don't rehabilitate the prisoners or that they are a form of abuse. Some prisoners, it seems, disagree.
"Before... we just get our food and go back to our cell, and if we don't have anything to do we just talk," a prisoner told USA Today back in 2007. "But it is different now. Every day we are very busy preparing to dance for our upcoming shows. We are very proud of what we have done."
