No Twerking Prom Movement: Students In Ohio Get Ballroom Lessons Before Prom

I remember being young and impressionable. Watching MTV and taking my social ques accordingly. Well, nowadays kids seem to learn everything from media, whether it is youtube, cable TV, or movies. That includes “dance moves” and thus we have the trend of twerking.
You know, that dance move that evolved from grinding?
That dance move that Miley Cyrus has perfected.

And this is not a jab at twerkers, honestly, I don’t even know how they do it. This is simply an applause to a teacher in Ohio who saw a need for a better way to educate her students about dance before throwing them on the dance floor for prom. She noticed that none of them really knew how to dance and the ones who thought they knew, were just as awkward as Miley. So she gave them free Ballroom dance lessons and started a dance club, where students could meet after school and practice their moves. She gave the girls a new way to feel confident without being objectified and well… she gave the guys a lesson of chivalry. There are about 10-15 students involved and I hope they get more. I really believe that all schools should have a “social dance club”.
