Maize principal bans sexy dancing

Students in Maize High School, which apparently got started early this year, are staying away from school dances en masse because they don’t like the new rules.
Principal Mike Bonner explained: The students, he said, were doing what they call “freak dancing,” grinding against one another in a sexually provocative way.
“It was to the point where I thought, ‘If a member of the community came up here and watched our kids dancing right now, would we be proud of this?’ And the answer was no,” Bonner told The Wichita Eagle.
The students said they were staying away because they wanted to dance “their way.” Bonner replied, “Hey, this is school, and we have different expectations.”
Boy/girl dancing at school, or wherever, has been hugging set to music for at least the last 70 years. It is sexually provocative by its nature, which is why some churches frown on the entertainment. On the other hand, a great number of boy/girl contacts are provocative at ages 14-15 and up. Doesn’t take much.
Having made that obvious observation, it is also true that high school students are under the supervision of their principals, other administrators and teachers while they are at any school function.
Principal Bonner’s edict is right on. “Dirty dancing” has no place at a school dance. He should stick with it. The kids will be back.
