Get used to the grinding and the innappropriate dancing.
It gets worse in high school, so either you can dance with you friends alone, or you can join the crowd (it's literally a crowd of like 400 people smushed together xD).
It's not going away.

I was a chaperone for my little sister's 7th & 8th grade dance.
There were like 17 year olds there dancing like they were in a club. It was odd!
Gosh, it's just a catholic school dance. :sad2:

haha, you will see that more and more as you get into highschool... it is kinda dirty, but you get used to it.. at my prom, there were like 1100 kids crammed into 1 dance floor... so i kinda ended up dancing with strangers haha.. it was awesome.. but if you know how to dance really well, there would be like a dance circle on the outside of the giant crowd where people would show off their moves... going to a highschool dance is basically going clubbing, but in much more formal clothing

For me dances is just plain fun and I have been dancing since a very young age, but I am not very comfortable out on the floor grinding. I do however like a good slow dance with a guy where I am being held tight.

I love school dances. My school's first dance is next week but a couple of weeks ago I went to another school's mixer. It was fun.

As everyone else said about the grinding: get used to it. You'll see ****tier dances as you get older.

When I was in junior high you couldn't get close to a guy and when you slow danced it was so awkward because like the guy could barely touch you. Now we make fun of it and it's so fun.

I just don't get into it(the grinding that much). I have studied Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Tap, and even Hip-Hop and I don't remember ever being taught grinding.:lmao: It is just something to rub your parts against one another, that isn't dancing to me.

I hate school dances.
I think they are boring.
And I hate dancing.
You get use to the dancing.
I just watch...I never dance.

Actually, my goal for the halloween dance, is just to participate xD

I don't like it. That's one of the reasons I am not going to homescoming because everyone I know going,dances like that.

I remember my two best friends last year were having a party and were trying to teach me how to dance like that and I felt so uncomfortable. Eventually at their party whenever people's butt's would come near me I would move to the other side of the dancefloor. XD

I love school dances.
Just ignore the grinders and have fun with the music.
Dance like a retard[=
I always do.
It gets me unwanted attention,
But it's better to do something and regret it then to not do it and regret it.
I don't know if that even makes sense, LOL.

Anyways, STORY TIME!!!

Ok, so last year (7th grade) I went to a dance. My friend's crush, whom I've known since kindergarten, asked if I wanted to dance. I was like "Oh OK" thinking it was just some friendly dancing.
10 minutes later, he tried to "back up" into me (AKA grinding).
I felt guilty, but I just stepped away. I'm glad I didn't do it, but I'm kinda feeling bad about if the guy got the wrong message.

I love school dances. I come with my friends to listen to the music. Even though all of it is rap, but it's still fun. I wish that some of my guy friends would at LEAST go. Not as a date, but just a friend. -.-

My homecoming was a few days ago. There was a lot of bad dancing. Sad to say that I took part in some, but I think everyone has. At homecoming there was a grind line about 50 people long. It was wild but a lot of fun at the same time.

The halloween dances at our school are just excuses for girls to wear "naughty nurse" outfits or even SHORTER clothes than they already wear.

NOT FOR ME. I try and win best costume with ghost rider.:D

And theres police at all of our dances. Our school...doesnt have the best rep.

school dances, especially middle school, they kept a close eye on.

people's own dances, well totally different story.

homecoming is this weekendd! and others grinding wtih each other doesn't really bother me.

I actually dont think my school does school dances
I know highschool does but im not sure about my school...hm...
i soo totally wish there was just so my friends and i could have something to ditch and go hang out with everyone

because normally school dances are annoying they dont play dancing songs they play rap songs and personally i think if your school is having a dance it should play like 50s-70s music thats actually dancableish
ya know?

Well thats just my opinion...
