Sue Maguire, HS Principal Hates Twerking - Homecoming Dance Canceled, It's Miley Cyrus Fault!
Sue Maguire, a High School principal has canceled the homecoming dance because of twerking by the students - she is unhappy kids are imitating Miley Cyrus on the dance floor and doesn't want that at the fall dance.
Maguire is the head of Mount Anthony Union High School in Bennington, Vermont and she has seen enough dirty dancing by teens at her school for her taste.
Her decision on how to end the bump and grind on the homecoming dance floor from today's teens is simple, just shut down the dance.
She drafted a letter to the editor of the local Vermont paper to explain her 'Footloose' decision.
Maguire wrote a detailed letter - below is a snip:
"Over the past couple of years, since Miley Cyrus took the stage 'twerking' at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, our students' dancing behavior has crossed the line of what we can condone as appropriate behavior at a school. Twerking is dancing to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving a low squatting stance and thrusting movements. Students do not face one another or remain with the same person for the length of the song. If you haven't seen twerking, I would encourage you to research this online."

The principal concludes her letter this way:
"Although this has been a disappointing decision for many of our students, we’re seizing this opportunity to engage in thoughtful problem-solving conversations with them in hopes of having dances in the future."
What do you think of the principal's decision to ban the homecoming dance due to concerns of imitating Miley Cyrus and her twerking antics?
