Blame Miley Cyrus! Vermont High School Cancels High School Dance Over Twerking Concerns!

blame miley cyrus vermont high school cancels high school dance over twerking concerns

Uh oh!

Miley Cyrus would NOT approve of this!

The principal of a high school in Bennington, Vermont, called Mount Anthony Union High School, has called off the annual homecoming dance… because she doesn't want the dance to be a twerk-fest!

Principal Sue Maguire was the one who made the final decision, and she reasoned her decision in a letter!

Here's what she wrote:

"Since Miley Cyrus took the stage 'twerking' at the 2013 MTV VMAs, 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."


We're not sure if it's that fair to cancel the homecoming dance just because of twerking concerns!

What's to stop these kids getting together on their own and having their own twerk homecoming dance — and that would be WITHOUT the adult supervision!

Plus, it's erasing a school tradition all because of Miley!

Hopefully the students can somehow convince their elder that they will keep their twerking to a minimum to possibly get this school dance back on!

If that doesn't happen - these students may not be able to twerk, but they may go berserk!

    ….yet they call it a 'Home-Cumming' dance. Maybe a booty-drop would be better?

    "Dirty dancing" has been going on for years…nothing new. I respect Sue but blaming Mylie & Twerking is a bit much. MTV anyone? Sexy dancing is everywhere. Not that I am thrilled about it with 2 young kids of my own.. I hope they address the real issue and have the kids involved in the conversation with a facilitator perhaps? What a better way to teach our kids that healthy debate can be a good thing. Banning & blaming then cancelling the dance because of main stream media is skirting the issue. I hope that the girl that felt uncomfortable and the problem was resolved and taken care of. That is not acceptable. There should be a zero tolerance policy for that. I hope adults..administration, school board and students can resolve this in an open forum. All come to an agreement. Listen to each other…this is just going to cause more issues in the end… Being reactionary is not teaching our youth. But inviting all and allowing all sides to be heard is teaching a life lesson. Heck I would come back home and chaperone…

    The kids at MAU ARE getting together and doing there own dance! From a students point of view I think they should have spoken to us kids (I graduated last year! ) we were NEVER spoken to!!! Its honestly a shame for the seniors who suffer the most I made some great memories just hanging out at the dances.

    I don't understand why the principal can't twerk out a deal with the students
