Controversy is apparently roiling a tiny Wisconsin town after school district officials sacked a high school dance team coach because her charges performed a football halftime dance routine set to Robin Thicke’s chart-topping song “Blurred Lines.”
The dance routine — and the football game — occurred on Aug. 23 at Marshfield High School. The coach, Lisa Joling, was fired three days after the incident, reports local ABC affiliate WAOW.
Joling told the local ABC affiliate that she allowed students on the dance team choose the songs for their routines, and this instance was no exception.
“We edited the music to make it appropriate for a high school dance team performance,” she added.
