A student at Grand Junction High School has plans to host a dance fundraiser after he said too strict of rules are being enforced at school dances.
Recently, school staff sent out a newsletter to parents explaining what is acceptable behavior and attire at school dances.
Sam Gall said since these new policies have taken affect, about 90% of students want the old ways back. Gall is hoping to have a fun dance for students at Banana's Pavilion on April 26th for Grand Junction High School students to attend. The proceeds will go to The House, a facility that houses homeless teens. He said the strict guidelines being enforced at school dances like, no kissing, no body contact, no sitting on laps will be allowed at his dance, to let students express themselves however they want. Gall said he wants the dance to be, "Kind of a way to protest it but not trash talk our school. We just want to dance how we believe.">
The dance is still in the beginning stages, and Gall said he is still looking for security and decorations and a DJ. He hopes to raise $1,500 in advance to cover those costs. He also hopes to raise $5,000 dollars for the house.
Grand Junction High School implemented the "no-grinding" policy after a student voiced concerns about not feeling comfortable at school dances because of too much sexual behavior.
