Cadets in vi­ral dance

- Viral · Italy · Regia Marina

THE Ital­ian navy has be­gun an in­quiry af­ter a pass­ing-out cer­e­mony for cadets turned into a dance rou­tine, led by an of­fi­cer.

In a video that has gone vi­ral in Italy, cadets car­ry­ing ri­fles can be seen danc­ing a rou­tine to Jerusalema by the South African DJ Mas­ter KG, which has in­spired online dance chal­lenges. The navy has launched dis­ci­plinary pro­ceed­ings, ac­cus­ing the fe­male of­fi­cer of be­hav­iour that was “not be­com­ing, and dam­ag­ing to her im­age and that of the navy”. The of­fi­cer’s lawyer said her client would chal­lenge any sanc­tion by the navy.
