New Jersey School Scraps Homecoming After Dirty Dancing
PRINCETON, N.J. – 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.
