Maryland students required to sign 'no twerking' contract

Officials at a Maryland high school say they are over twerking and have declared an upcoming school dance a "twerk-free" event.

In fact, students at Annapolis High School must sign a "no twerking" contract in order to attend the dance.

The contract clearly states no grinding, intimate touching or dancing with your buttocks touching or in the air.

Parents and faculty agree the twerking needs to end.

"Dances have become more provocative in recent years and we've had some issues at schools, frankly," said Bob Mosier with the district.

"I think it's fair because some of the kids do need to tone it down," said parent Nicole Harbor.

Students caught breaking the contract will be kicked out of the dance.

Dance contracts are not a new thing at Annapolis high, but students say this is the first time it's ever been so specific.

Twerking has been a trending dance move, including singer Miley Cyrus' infamous performance at the MTV Video Music Awards earlier this year.
