In the third installment of our series A Visit to the Principal's Office, Michele Norris talks with Principal Charles Salter of Aliso Niguel High School in California.

He banned dances at the school after becoming fed up with students' sexually suggestive moves. Salter explains his responsibility as principal is to teach students "appropriateness."

But that doesn't mean Salter should be taken for a stiff; he explains how, once upon a time, he used to cut a rug on the dance floor himself.
