Defence is under the spotlight after commissioning female dancers to twerk at the opening of a naval ship.

The women performed before an array of people at the launch of HMAS Supply at Garden Island.

A Defence spokesperson said in a statement, “The dance was performed prior to the commencement of the Commissioning formalities and prior to the arrival of His Excellency the Governor General, Chief of Navy and Commander Australian Fleet. ”

However, ABC’s original footage shows top officials present at the show.

Listener David was in attendance and told Chris Smith it “wasn’t very appropriate”.

“We just thought it wasn’t the right type of dance for that occasion.”

Australia Defence Association Director Neil James assured Chris “it’ll never happen again”.

“This was probably an idiot decision made by a junior officer.

“I think we should all move on from it.”
