School dance chaperones have been butting in and shooting menacing glares to stop teens from getting too down and dirty. In the days of twerking, however, the administrators are putting it in writing.
According to the Baltimore Sun, Sykesville’s Century High School issued a contract to students and parents that declared there would be no twerking, or any other kind of dance move deemed suggestive, at last weekend’s homecoming dance.
A Carroll County Public Schools administrator told the Sun that the twerking treaties were meant to draw a line about what was appropriate at a dance.
Other Carroll County schools have begun using a bracelet system to limit the action on the dance floor. In this system, which is not used at Century, students are forced to take off the bracelet if they get too bawdy. If a student doesn’t have a bracelet, it means they’ve been warned.
While it’s tough to stop a party in motion, Century’s principal seemed to think the extra measures helped. After kids and parents signed the no-twerk contract, he told Good Morning America, he didn’t have to kick anyone off the dance floor on Saturday.
