Aliso Viejo Historical Events

2006, September
Charles Salter, the principal of Aliso Niguel High School, gained widespread media attention when he banned all school dances until further notice. Though unpopular, his decision was based on the school's "Welcome Back Dance", in which several students became intoxicated, while others engaged in "freak dancing". Salter views "freak dancing" as inappropriate at a school dance. At the end of the month, Salter stood his ground and cancelled the school's annual Homecoming Dance. A story on the school was featured on the national television program, Geraldo at Large, and the BBC also covered the dance ban. In late November, it was announced that the dances would return to the school, but under new rules that banned "freak dancing."
