If you’re not ready to go home, if you gonna go all night, you best not twerk at an Anne Arundel County high school dance.
South River and Annapolis high school have issued contracts forbidding students from dancing with “buttocks touching or facing a partner or in the air.”
For those of you who are not high school principals, that means: no twerking, the vigorous booty-shaking move that Miley Cyrus displayed at the MTV Video Music Awards in August.
This follows a Washington high school, which required students and their parents sign a contract that states students will not twerk, lap dance, or otherwise “look like you’re having sex” on the dance floor during school-sanctioned events.
Officials from River Ridge High School sent the “RRHS Dance Contract” to students’ homes earlier this month.
The contract spells out various types of “inappropriate dancing,” as well as potential consequences should students violate the contract. Potential punishments range from a warning to removal from a dance and a ban on future dances.
The contract also states that students will not be refunded any costs associated with a dance should they be dismissed.
