Danced Till We Dropped

The 2021 homecoming dates felt the pressure to be the ‘best dressed’. Lots of students had trouble finding outfits that match their dates. “ I couldn’t find a bow tie in the color I needed,” junior Asher Eichorn said. 

Lots of students wore bright and bold colors to the dance. “My dress was bright blue with cut-outs on the side,” Lilly Krob said, “I thought it was a fun choice that would be unique.” 

The homecoming dance went off without a hitch. Walking through the high school doors, students were consumed by the flash of the lights and the low beat of the music. After students put their phones and heels in the gym, they follow the music to the commons. “I pulled people onto the dance floor,” said senior Tessa Batty. 

After the dance, many students expressed mixed feelings about the music. “There was a lot of ‘Cha-Cha Slides’, over and over again,” junior June Janda said. The homecoming playlist can’t please everyone’s music taste buds, but there was a variety of songs ranging from “I Got A Feelin” by the Black Eyed Peas, to “More Than A Woman” by the Bee Gees. 

The restrictions of COVID-19 from homecoming 2020 postponed the freshmen and sophomore class from experiencing a real dance until this year. “It was different than I thought it was going to be,” sophomore Sophie Bunch said. “I liked how after a while everyone was actually dancing.” 

Students danced until the clock struck midnight. “I left with all smiles,” junior Abbie Morf said.
