Students Resist 'Face to Face' Dirty Dancing Policy

He's confident that the new measures will weed out the dirty dancers -- tickets will be denied to students who refuse the orientation and contract as well as those who have been kicked out of previous dances.

The school's guidelines as to what is and is not acceptable dancing are still being drafted, but Perrins provided ABCNews.com with some examples of what is considered inappropriate from a list handed out to students in previous years.

They include:

Front to back/back to front grinding Front to back/back to front with hands below partner's hips Inappropriate fondling or touching Bending over in any position that is equal to or exceeds 90 degrees Ankle grabbing or hands on floor Front to front straddling

And, Perrins stressed, there is a rumor that students will be subjected to actual dance lessons -- that is not true.

"I'm not going to get up there and breakdance," he joked.

But they are going to have to tone it down.

"Teenagers are teenagers. They're exploring their bodies and they see things on the media," he said, adding that provocative music videos make that kind of dancing seem normal for public settings.

The Prairie High School dance motto for this year is one that has been used by other schools across the country -- "Face to Face and Leave Some Space."
