When "Footloose" was released in the 1980s, we thought, "Gawd! What kind of backwards school district bans dancing?"
Well, here we are, almost twenty years later, and another school district has put such stringent rules on their high school dance that I find it difficult to see how dancing could be possible while adhering to them. According to The Smoking Gun (http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/years/2010/0126102dance1.html?link=rssfeed), the school district has decided that dancing is OK, as long as "both feet must remain on the floor at all times."
There are other rules, but that one takes the cake.
Don't you just love the last bit about students being videotaped for their own safety? I wonder what administrator will be assigned the task of minutely watching those videos for signs of "touching," "cleavage" and "sexual bending." Will they, I also wonder, be allowed to make copies so the whole administrative staff can assist in checking to make sure all students keep all feet on the floor at all times?
Your taxes at work, folks...
