PRINCIPAL BANS HIGH SCHOOL DANCES BECAUSE OF GRINDING

John Clark Russ, Bangor DaIly News - Norris Nickerson stands in one of the main hallways at Bangor High School where he has been the principal for more than 20 years. Nickerson says there will be no more dances affiliated with the school until students agree to stop simulating sex as they dance, also known as "grinding."

BHS Principal Norris Nickerson said students at the dances were refusing to comply with the school’s rules regarding the hip-hop dance style known as grinding and other forms of “dirty dancing.”

“We’ve tried to take care of the problem, but the inappropriate behavior has continued and, in my opinion, has become worse. The decision was made that dances would be stopped until this behavior is under control,” Nickerson said this week.

Grinding, a dance style that generally involves a boy grinding his crotch into a girl’s behind, is a national trend and schools across the country are dealing with the issue, Norris said.
