STONINGTON — One high school is cracking down on dirty dancing.

The Day  reports that Stonington High School has instituted a new policy beginning with Saturday’s homecoming dance that prohibits “grinding and other forms of inappropriate dancing and touching.”

Students will be given a warning the first time they violate the policy.

A second offense will result in ejection from the dance.

Students must also dress “tastefully” for all dances and if any attire is found to be inappropriate, they will be asked to leave.

All students and their parents must sign the policy in order to buy dance tickets.

Principal Mark Friese says inappropriate dancing discourages some students from attending school events, or leads to parents barring their children from dances.
