New Jersey School Scraps Homecoming After Dirty Dancing

Princeton High School has scrapped its annual homecoming dance because of dirty dancing and alcohol at last year's event.

The student council has scheduled a movie and a bonfire instead for Saturday night.

The school plans to have its cotillion in January and a prom in the spring.

Student school board representative Arpi Youssoufian tells The Times of Trenton it was just a few out-of-control students who caused problems last year.

So far, it seems the alternative to the dance is well-received. The president of the school's Parent Teacher Organization says 300 students have already signed up.
