Thanks goes out to Ric from School Dance Network, a website designed for school administrators to educate themselves on the latest teen dance issues.
He spotted my Grinding article and invited me to visit there pretty darn cool site. They are the originators of the Do Not playlist for school dances; songs that have excessive profanity, sexual or violent lyrics. And, demystify what those wacky kids are up to.
They also have some good information on how school can handle the Grinding issue at their school.
And, come to find out he is just some dad from here in the NW that started this whole thing up. Good for you, Ric!
