‘Inappropriate’ dance moves lead to calls for student lessons in Peters

20140221-154642.jpgMr. Merrell said the students told him they didn’t know how to dance and got their moves from MTV.

He asked administrators to survey students to see if they would be interested in dance classes. Mr. Merrell said he envisioned several 45-minute classes on weekends for students who are interested.

But, several other members strongly objected, saying that what Mr. Merrell considers inappropriate is just a generational difference.

“I think this is a chapter from the ‘Footloose’ movie,” said member Ron Dunleavy. “I don’t think it’s our job to do that.” —Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
