what dancing does for kids is make them feel great
why would any parent stop their kids from dancing?
maybe the religous community is behind it all ,their version of dancing is an arms length waltz,,let the kids alone ,there will be o.k.
you were when you were kids wasn't you ?

Yep the next thing you know we'll be spending tax dollars on those kids that have been arrested and charged with aggravated criminal dancing and inciting a riot.

I can't believe the comments from either side on here! Talk about muddled thinking. Dancing is not sexual just because it is dancing. Dancing and flirting and even being a bit suggestive is normal and fun and a good outlet. Doing it doggie style on the dance floor is NOT dancing. Then we have the silly people who imply that everyone who does not want to do sex on the dance floor is a loser. Are you kidding? Then we have the people who say they are going to do what they want regardless of the school policy. I say they need to be escorted out of the dance. Equally insane are the people talking about having rules and meeting the norm and so on. They seem wrapped up in enforcing some mythical "norm" that they have no right to impose on everyone and to be in love with having rules just to have rules.

I don't get what is so hard. Set reasonable parameters and enforce them. It is pathetic that the school seems to think they can't enforce reasonable policies. Make everyone sign in and supply a parental phone number. If they don't follow school policies take them to a time out room and call home. If they number doesn't work they get suspended from school. Yes, some goofy parent is bound to complain--let them go through the appeals process. This is called teaching.

Just for the record this is why I never went to school dances, proms or other events. I didn't want to spend my time with a bunch of drunken, inconsiderate jerks. That's not being a loser, that's being smart enough to think for yourself and having the stones to stand up for what you believe.

You are not one of the adults that have to watch kids have sex on the dance floor! At least the car is private.

Wow, great way to teach your children the rules don't apply to them as silly as a rule or guideline might seem, it's still a rule and it should be respected.

For those of you saying to let the kids dance any way they want to - they're not hurting anyone, etc....just imagine for a few seconds that that's YOUR teenage daughter out there on the dance floor.

There are limits to what is acceptable in public!

"Kids will be kids and rebel!"

"Why don't school officials worry more about education than this?"

"All dancing is sexual in nature. Where do we draw the line?"

Some quotes from on here. First off, have most of you seen this style of dance? It's not the Dirty Dancing movie dancing. The girl bends over and rubs herself on the guy's crotch. It looks like they are f-ing. Period.

Here, google grinding brings up this video first:

Now don't those kids look cute dry humping each other?

Seriously, how much farther can we go?

Here's how much:


So, yeah, I think the parents and the school have the duty of teaching these kids some class. Which this is unequivocally not. This has nothing to do with what goes on after prom, private parties, etc. This is teaching these kids how to act in public at a formal function and treating society with respect by behavior that doesn't look like you really SHOULD go get a room.

Or you could just teach them a new dance move where it looks like you're giving your dance partner a B.J. Wait, maybe they already do that, too. Oh, those darn, rebellious kids!

Hmm...dance is creative expression, which is generally held to be a first ammendment issue. Wonder how this turns out when one of the "anti-grind activist principals" kicks out the wrong rich kid?
"Bump and Grind" training is not sufficient.Prostitution should be recognized for the profession that it is.Public schools should prepare these young women to support "theyselves".That way the taxpayor could get out of the Public Housing,Section 8,EBT,and Welfare business.
