Did This Happen at YOUR Prom?
When I went to school at Kasson-Mantorville, we never had to worry about this. It was always the boys on one side of the gym and girls on the other side. Now, some high schoolers are being made to sign “dance contracts” before they can attend their prom. The document outlaws close contact and ‘booty poppin’. The contract, or “Statement of Student Responsibilities,” also bans grinding, bumping, humping, hunching, goosing and sexually explicit dancing such as twerking, freaking and dirty dancing. Administrators say the ban will insure a wholseome experience for students while cutting down on their ‘urges’.
