On Saturday, February 10th, Slippery Rock High School held their annual Sadie Hawkins dance in the old gymnasium. The dance is designated for girls to ask the guys to the dance, and many took this opportunity to do so.

Seniors Olivia Kocuba, Madison Crighton, Natalie Thompson, Jillian Savena, Adeline Birks, Ava Marini, and Camilia Valencia attended the Sadie Hawkins dance.

According to Ms. Gallagher the ticket price of $10 for a couple and $8 for a single is decided by the Student Council voting for a certain price. Student Council sets the price after taking into consideration the costs from previous years and also the supplies cost needed such as the decorations, the food, the DJ, and the chaperones. Also, the day is decided on by taking into consideration of the dates of winter sports competitions. The dance was decorated with Valentine’s Day themed decorations.

Ever since the dance was changed from the annual Winterfest to Sadie Hawkins it has been held later in the winter.  The dance was chaperoned by Ms. Gallagher, Mrs. Foster, Mrs. Cole, Mrs. Vinroe and her three daughters. The dance was DJed by Mrs. Cole’s husband, Mr. Cole, who played hits such as Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing,” “I Want to Dance with Somebody,” and newer music such as “Money Moves.” Of course, the classic dances were played too, such as the Cupid Shuffle, the Wobble, and the Cha Cha Slide. There were cookies, mints, and pink lemonade as refreshments throughout the night.

Junior Emma Magliocca states that she enjoyed the group of friends she went with. She said, “It was fun to let loose and dance during the night.”

Junior, Mekenzie Pflueger says that she proposed with a cheesy poster asking her date, Josh Burton, to go with her for their third year in a row. Pflueger also explains that “The music was more of the old classics and that many people sat out during some songs.” She also states, “I think the dance time is great. It could have gone for another hour but they shut the lights off seven minutes before it was over.”
