(Grand Forks Herald) Explicit rules against explicit dance moves sent Red River High School students waltzing out of the gym Friday night to reassemble two miles south on the far side of town to dance as they pleased.

It was a migration noticed by others, including police, amid the hubbub on Red River’s campus after the first home football game and dance of the season.

Not that anything illegal went on, police said.

As usual, the school held a dance after the first home game, said Principal Kris Arason.

He had made clear, during the small-group orientations held at the beginning of every school year to students in all four grades, what kind of behavior was expected in class and at other school activities, including dances, Arason said.

“The night of the dance they started dancing and they were … exhibiting behavior we had told them was not appropriate for school dances,” Arason said Wednesday.
