Schools in the Wichita area and across the state are cracking down on inappropriate dancing at school functions, and some students are responding by staying away from the events.

Maize High School Principal Mike Bonner says he was shocked when he saw students "freak dancing," or grinding against each other in a sexually provocative way.

When he turned off the music and reminded students about a no-grinding rule, about 500 of them walked out. Later at a winter homecoming attendance was way down.

Students in Salina also are protesting that school's policy requiring them to "maintain appropriate personal space." Only about a half-dozen students showed up at Salina Central High School's recent back-to-school dance.
