JONESBORO, Ga. (AP) - A high school in Clayton County has
disbanded its dance team for the rest of the school year after the
girls performed a provocative routine during a basketball game.
The routine performed at a Jonesboro High School game on Jan. 13

The team's sponsor, a teacher at the high school, was removed from her role as the faculty adviser for the team. Clayton County school district spokesman Charles White says the girls will not face disciplinary action for the dance routine.
Videos of the girls' dance were posted on YouTube and MySpace
this week and drew thousands of hits. The routine included the
girls dancing on chairs in tiny, tight shorts and thigh-high
stockings. At one point in the routine, shirtless boys sat in the
chairs as the girls danced around them.
