District’s dance policy ensures comfortable environment
Student council advisor Scott Hollabaugh explained that the dance policy clearly states what you are allowed to wear and what you are not. If you choose not to follow the dress code, the contract gives the right to the administration to deny you entrance to the dance.
“We have only had to ask about two people to change,” Mr. Hollabaugh said. “If they changed, they were allowed back in [to the dance].”
Inappropriate or sexually provocative dance moves are not tolerated and the rule breaker can and will be asked to leave. This policy is enforced by adding more teachers to supervise at the dances and limiting the students from engaging in unsuitable behavior.
“No making babies on the dance floor,” junior Cheyenne Adamonis said.
Some students think the dance code is a good thing, keeping the dances at a PG or high school level.
“Do you really want to show up to up in a dress that makes you look like you should be in a club instead of Homecoming dance?” a student council member said.
These guidelines benefit everyone by creating an enjoyable and comfortable dance environment.
“It’s just uncomfortable to watch that stuff on the dance floor,” Adamonis said. “It just makes everyone uncomfortable.”
Everyone who chooses to go to a school-sponsored dance must follow the dance contract. These contracts were signed at the beginning of the year and if disobeyed students will be vulnerable to punishments and consequences.
“It’s high school; act your age,” Adamonis said.
