A Central New York school district, fed up with sexy hip-grinding and pelvic thrusts on the dance floor, has cancelled its annual Snow Ball this winter.
Skaneateles High School had tried several things to stop students from dancing in an overtly sexual style at school dances. Gym teachers taught the waltz, tango, and cha-cha. The district switched disc jockeys. The homecoming dance was moved to a larger space, the gymnasium, to give kids more room to spread out.
The Syracuse Post-Standard reports that the grinding and inappropriate clothing continued. So the district axed the February Snow Ball.
Fayetteville-Manlius High School near Syracuse banned grinding at dances in 2006. Students there are given one warning if they're caught grinding on the dance floor. Next time, they're sent home.
