Photos of the Bellevue High School homecoming were posted on Facebook, creating the first Ohio school dirty dancing ban.
The Bellevue Gazette says photos from the event on the newspaper's Facebook page prompted an angry phone call from Bellevue Superintendent Kim Schubert, who called the pictures "a shock."
Schubert issued a statement Tuesday saying inappropriate dancing at school events would not be tolerated. She says no further dances will be held in the district 45 miles southeast of Toledo until students are given some rules on behavior expected from them.
Bellevue High School senior Mariel Andrews said do that school administrators are being "dramatic" and blowing things out of proportion. Whle some students agree with the ban, others say the school is overreacting.
