Twerking: Serious Problem at Kitsap School

twerking2

Central Kitsap High School held a mandatory staff meeting on wednesday to address the growing popularity of a dangerous dance act known as twerking.  Twerking is defined as the gyrating of the buttocks in a rhythmic manner. It is reported to be spreading amongst females at the school. Staff say it has become a serious distraction in classrooms and that as many as 13 girls have been seriously injured performing it.

District officials did not initially address the issue when it came to their attention back in August after the MTV music awards cast it into the national spotlight.  One staff member told us “We have seen things like this come and go. In the 80’s, everyone was walking like an Egyptian. In the 90’s it was the Macarena. Last decade we saw an influx of Krumping with the Hyphy movement. But this is something totally different and if we don’t do something to stop it, things could get out of control.”

Becky Landerson, a Junior at CK admitted that many girls at school are abusing twerking. Becky is a former twerkaholic, but has since kicked the habit and now leads a support group for girls dealing with similar issues.

“I started skipping class to twerk. I stopped caring about everything. I lost contact with a lot of my friends and family. Eventually, I dropped out and began twerking on the streets” Becky says.  Now back in school, and taking twerkboxone to curb her cravings, Becky is clearly shaken from the experience.

The district said they will hold a public meeting on the subject next month.  If you suspect your child of twerking, please contact the Public Health Department for support.

    Are you kidding me? No mandatory meetings on drinking and driving unless they want to play idiotic. More that 50% of all Juniors and 65% of all seniors do drinking and 40% of those drive while doing it. Twerking is stupid but does it really warrant a meeting? Boys get Tennis Elbow from masturbating better spend money and hold a meeting about that. I’m sorry but this is the stupid topic on a meeting I have heard in a long time. Maybe you should hold a meeting banning the word freedom while were at it.

    Uhhh… I have literally never seen nor heard of any of this. I mean, Twerking, yes, but I don’t think people are dropping out of school to ‘twerk on the streets.’ Unless this is an elaborate joke, in which case, bravo.

      It’s true, I saw Becky with that sign also (Will Twerk 4 Food). I gave her my Big Mac cause i felt bad for her, and I’ll admit she was one hell of a twerker.

      I’m not sure what’s more funny, the story or Rebekah Harris’s response. I know this is the internet where spelling and grammar are frowned upon, but it doesn’t help your case calling them “small minded kids when you write something that makes you look like you dropped out of the third grade.

    Is this a joke? You cant possibly be serious about this. Haha the things that the School District spends their time on. Instead of working on making the education you are providing students better, you are focused on a “twerking issue.” You have got to be kidding me.

    I dunno. Those Kitsap girls will try anything once. Looks like this twerkin’ thing is getting out of control, though. When I first heard about it, you coulda knocked me over with a wrecking ball.

    Is this really our biggest problem in Kitsap County or even news? I find this article ridiculous. If kids are dropping out of school to twerk on the street, the real problem is the school or whatever else has happened to that kid/s. Heroin and crystal meth run rapid in Kitsap county and you guys wanna report on the “gyrating of buttocks” as you guys so eloquently put it.

    I don’t think this there is anything funny about this. My daughter attends CKHS, and this type of the behavior is the LAST thing that I allow in our home. Not only is it completely inappropriate, but to find out that 13 girls at the school have been HURT in the process? This is just adding insult to injury. I will be having words with the CK administration about this if I don’t see concrete evidence that steps are being taken toward a solution. The moral stature of the female students in this years class is bad enough, from what my daughter tells me. Sex, drugs, and abortion galore!

      Honey, please don’t bother the poor staff at CKHS. It’s a joke. Your comment is one of the most well written, as far as grammar and spelling goes. It leads me to believe you are capable to independent, critical thinking. Please use some critical thinking to determine the veracity of this article before you bother the poor CK administrators.

        @crafty – I think it’s better if she just goes ahead and brings up her “complaint” with the school lol. Maybe publicly humiliating herself will knock some sense into her. Oh how I wish I could be there to watch!

    I’m a 56 year old man. During a Thanksgiving event at the VFW hall I thought it would be funny to do a twerk on the dance floor. I now have two herniated discs, and the doc says if I don’t stop twerking, I’ll be wheelchair bound for life. I think there’s some sort of nervological thing that happens when you do it, because I just can’t stop! If there’s a support group for this, please publish the information.
