To freak dance or not to freak dance?

In my story today, I explore the freak dancing craze and the tactics administrators and parents are taking to thwart the behavior.

Several schools have banned an extreme form of freak dancing. Some schools have rules that dictate the type of music played at dances in order to prevent the provocative moves. Other administrators have even banned school dances altogether to avoid the headache of having to enforce non-sexual dancing.

One principal I interviewed essentially said that he runs a school, not a dance club.

Should students have a say in the matter? Is freak dancing a way for them to express themselves? Or do you think that this type of dancing has not place on the dance floor? Does your school have an innovative way to combat freak dancing? I want to hear all your anecdotes and opinions!
