High school students forced to sign homecoming dance contract
High school students in Independence, MO and their parents were required to sign a Homecoming dance contract to prevent any inappropriate physical contact on the dance floor at Homecoming. Under the contract, students are prohibited from "freaking, grinding, moshing" and "no dancing back-to-front, side-to-back, side-to-front, or back-to-back." There are also "no bending over" and "both feet on the floor" rules.
Truman High School's principal Kristel Barr explains that sexual dancing at school functions has "been getting progressively worse. We believe all students should be comfortable at dances."
Students found in violation of the Homecoming dance contract will be told to leave without warning. Their parents will be notified, and they will not be permitted to attend three other dances this school year.
Leave it to the school system to try and regulate dancing at school. We're back in the 1950s again. Granted the grinding can be a bit much but going to far the other way makes no sense. They'll be grinding in the parking lot.
