Imagine if today’s teenagers are parents, grandparents, aunts, or uncles. They would show their nieces, nephews, sons, and daughters their memories of dancing in their school dances when they were about their ages. They may also show them their dance moves and they would learn those from you.
And that’s why I created this site - to show that grinding (or freak dancing) is an inappropriate dance move in a school function or other event where children are involved is strictly inappropriate.
Like many teenagers of my generation, I fell victim to that dance. I did it one time at a youth ministry retreat and when the DJ reminded us to stop it, I stopped. I did the same at homecoming as a senior and joined in the “grind chain” (see “What is Grinding”). On that day, I declared myself that enough was enough. I resisted the urge to join the majority of teenagers who were freaking on the dance floor at prom.
Despite the fact that I graduated from high school, teenagers still do it on the dance floor, even when teachers tell them not to. So it’s up to concerned people like me to remind them that grinding belongs to nightclubs and other places that allow it, not at proms, homecomings, and wedding receptions!
