A Maryland high school has asked students to sign a “dance contract,” vowing not to twerk or dance provocatively at the school’s homecoming events.

In order to attend the homecoming dance, students at Annapolis High School and their parents will have to agree to the contract, which bans twerking, a dance move made famous by Miley Cyrus. Also, “no grinding, intimate touching or dancing with your buttocks touching or in the air” will be permitted at the event, The Huffington Post reported.

The contract also bans “making out, skimpy dresses, and simulated sex,” the Capital Gazette reported.

“This, unfortunately, has become the norm. Some of this crazy dancing that makes others feel uncomfortable,” Annapolis Principal Susan Chittim told the paper. “Some kids feel left out because of the dancing that occurs.”


Some Annapolis students think the contract won’t be enforced.

“I guarantee we will see some twerking,” senior Kate Gonsalves told the Gazette.

“It depends whether [teachers] let it go on or not,” classmate Cali Roberts said.
