High school cheerleading squads are perhaps the most visible face of a school’s female population, telling fans of the home and visiting teams just what the girls at that school are all about. Judging by the dance routine performed by the dance team at Jonesboro High in Georgia a few weeks ago, the message they were sending about their female population was this: our names collectively are Barbie, Candy and Jasmine, and we’re just working at the strip club until we finish nursing school.
Which is not to imply that the girls Jonesboro High or their dancers are anything but fine, chaste young ladies. But that sure isn’t the impression you get from the routine the squad performed at halftime on Jan. 13. So it’s little wonder why the ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION is reporting that embarrassed administrators have barred the squad from performing for the rest of the year.
Was the routine overly risque for teenagers, or is this wild overreaction by the school district? See the video after the jump and judge for yourself:
