Md. School Cancels Dance For ‘Dirty’ Violations

CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) — A high school in Cumberland says it’s canceling a February dance to crack down on the sexy gyrations known as dirty dancing or freak dancing.

Allegany High School Principal Mike Calhoun said Wednesday that students at the autumn homecoming dance ignored appropriate behavior guidelines developed by student government.

Calhoun says the February Sweetheart Dance is off, and the spring prom is in jeopardy.

Schools across the country are struggling to control dirty dancing by canceling events or making students sign contracts prohibiting the sexy moves.

Junior Sierra Sines tells the Cumberland Times-News she understands administrators’ concerns but she really hopes to go to prom.
