    WELLS, Maine (AP) - Students at two southern Maine high schools have had cold water thrown on their steamy dances at school events.

    Wells and Cape Elizabeth this fall banned a dance style known as "grinding," which features boys grinding their pelvises against girls' backsides. The dance, school officials said, is sexually suggestive and has no place in schools.

    Meanwhile students at Concord High School in New Hampshire are trying to reach an agreement about grinding that will allow their homecoming dance to go forward. Originally scheduled for last weekend, it was cancelled because of concerns that students would not respect the ban on grinding.

    "Given that this is still a school setting and it is a school-sponsored activity, it is not a place where kids come to grind," said Eileen Sheehy, assistant principal at Wells High School.

    But defenders of grinding say the dance is a sign of the times, like the twist or disco in years past.

    "There are so many worse things we could be doing," said Erica Boulay, a senior at Wells High School.

    Speaking as the parent of a teenager...that's a threat that isn't going to get you anywhere young lady. You can dance all by yourself in your room cause you ain't goin' to the dance.
