Principal Cancels Homecoming Dance...Because of Twerking

Posted September 4th, 2014 @ 5:33am by Chilli Amar



Sue Maguire is the principal at Mount Anthony Union High School in Bennington, Vermont.  And she just CANCELLED the school's homecoming dance and ALL future dances...until the kids stop TWERKING.


She says, quote, "Over the past couple of years, since Miley Cyrus took the stage 'twerking' at the 'MTV Video Music Awards', our students' dancing behavior has crossed the line of what we can condone as appropriate behavior.


"Twerking is dancing in a sexually provocative manner . . . students do not face one another or remain with the same person for the length of the song."

And she says it doesn't work to stop kids from dancing that way at each dance . . . there are 400 or 500 of them, and it's too hard to get in the middle of things and monitor every student.


So dances COULD come back one day . . . but only after all the students agree to dance more respectfully and appropriately.
