MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The latest flash mob dance craze has prompted suspensions and even police citations at Twin Cities area high schools.
The "Harlem Shake" is an Internet phenomenon with thousands of You Tube postings by those who break out in the dance. School administrators dealing with the increasing impact of social media are cracking down on impromptu dancers.
Sixteen high school students were suspended in Eden Prairie when the dance broke out in the cafeteria and students jumped on tables. In Wayzata, 15 students were banned from the school weight room after recording a dance there.
The Star Tribune says school leaders at Mound Westonka High School are dealing with the backlash from suspensions and citations to six varsity hockey players who staged a similar dance.
