Halloween School Dance
The School Dance Committee started setting up for the dance at 2:30pm on Halloween afternoon. They started by prepping the theatre to be decorated with spooky decorations. These tasks included relocating the assembly chairs, therefore making space for the dance floor. The team of decorators made quick work by blowing up balloons, hanging ghosts over the stage, and creating a photo booth area near the main theatre entrance. While that was going on, the leaders of the Committee – Payton Adderley and Will Fleming – were busy setting up sound check for the music with our music teacher, Mr. Smith. Making good use of set up time, a valuable committee member, Griffin Wheatley, set up the lights and fog machine to complete the spooky setting for the night’s event.
The dance began at 7:00pm and students arrived quickly to have fun on the dance floor. A variety of music was played that everyone seemed to enjoy. After about an hour and a half, a costume contest was held on stage, in which the winner was chosen by applause. As chosen by her peers, the winner was Aimee Cooper! Immediately after the costume contest, there was a planned surprise flash mob performance by the KES Fall Sport Term Dancers. Students continued dancing the night away with enjoyable and festive music, such as Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”. Everyone’s dancing was fueled by canteen goodies and refreshments which was hosted by the KES Dance Team.
Overall, the Halloween Dance was a great success with a record turnout of students. This would not have been possible without the amazing team of students working together to create the spooktacular atmosphere, as led by the heads of the School Dance Committee – Will and Payton. The night’s added happy horror would also not have been possible without Ms. Cummings and her amazing crew of dancers. Thanks to everyone who attended!
