Florida schools ban sexy dancing

LAKELAND, Fla., Oct. 2 (UPI) -- Officials of a Florida school district said they have banned high school students from dancing provocatively at school events.

David Lewis, director of high schools for Polk County Public Schools, said principals were told during a September meeting to be on the lookout for bump-and-grind dancing at school shindigs and students who are warned but continue the practice will be asked to leave, The (Lakeland, Fla.) Ledger reported Friday.

"There is an appropriate decorum," Lewis said.

Lakeland High School Principal Tracy Collins said sexually explicit dancing, commonly called "booty dancing," has been an issue at past school dances.

"Some (female students) look like they are in a three-point stance getting ready to hike a ball," Collins said. "It can be boy-girl, girl-girl or five or six grinding on each other. I'm mortified."
