Dance codes required at Wis. high school proms


WAUSAU (WKOW) -- Some Wisconsin schools are requiring students to sign a code of conduct that they will dance "appropriately" at prom.

In the Wausau area, high school administrators say an increase in sexually suggestive dancing has prompted them to have students sign papers that outline behavioral expectations before they attend dances.

The signed codes of conduct must be turned in when students at Wausau East, West and D.C. Everest buy tickets to their dances. Everest students also must get their parents to sign the codes of conduct.

School officials say the dance code was revamped when "grinding" became a prevalent dance style among teens.

One student calls the code a good idea, because students then know what is expected. But another doesn't think it's effective.
