The series of videos played after the morning announcements at Minnetonka High School in Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA.

The videos were to discourage 'grinding' at the school's 2006 Homecoming dance.

The aftermath: The dance yeilded disappointing results to the administration when the grinding persisted. At first shaparones asked students engaging in grinding to leave the dance. It eventually got so out of hand, all efforts were given up.

Special Thanks to Zach Dimond. He starred and wrote these short skits. He also got the DVD files for me to upload to YouTube.

[EDIT] When being converted from DVD to a YouTube compatable uploadable format, some of the scenes disappeared. I'll try getting this fixed sometime in the next week.

I had to look it up in Wikipedia...

But it is a dancestyle where you rubb against your dancepartner in a, hmm, well, sexually descriptive way, to explain it short...

Hope that makes sense

Well, did you watch the video?

The guy there says that in the US they have some kind of a "third party sexual harassment (spelling?) act" that sais that if somebody (whoever that be doesn't matter) get offended by what you do you can be sued for it, and this act most be put to force at an even sponsored by the state, and the homecomming dance seems to be that kind of event...
And also, the act states that you can't get away with things like, "but I thought it was okey, since everybody else did it..."

If anyone of you US guys spot anythign I have missed, or misinterpreted, please tell me... (I am not 100% sure I understood everything as good as I wanted to...)
