The Sadie Hawkins Dance has a small but interesting turnout


Friday, March 11, the doors opened at 7 p.m. for students to enter the building, deans Tom Kempf and Chris Duncan were reminding students to have their IDs. Everyone was given a blue wristband once checking in at the front, and then the next stop was the dance.

The central gym seemed bigger than usual, however it didn’t mean the students were not making the best of it. The neon lights shined all across the room, and the stacked bleachers were decorated with neon splatted over black paper.

“The lights outside the door and in the gym were great,” said sophomore Marisa Bowman.

Although this was the second coming of the Sadie Hawkins dance, due to the cancellation of the first set date, the students still made the best of their time. The dance was presented by the Student Council and originally set for Saturday, Feb. 13. However, due to booking reasoning’s for the east Gym, it was postponed and moved.

“If the dance would have been on the original day, there would [have] been more people,” said junior Connor Ray.

The turnout was small, however the advertising of the dance was highly minimized due to the cancellation the first time, and all the reoccurring events beforehand.

“It made me feel as if I shouldn’t of came,” said freshman Michael Jernigan. “But we made the [most]  fun out of it.”

At one point, everyone there danced as a whole group. Two times a train was started by students and they all joined in the train, walking around and dancing to the music. There were also multiple dance circles that students moved around to.

Everyone in the room knew each other, and made a good turn out for the dance.

“Once everyone just kinda let loose it was a lot of fun,” said freshman Emily Grassano. “We embraced having a little amount of people.”

Despite the amount of people who turned up,  everyone made the best of it all.
