On the night of Saturday April 26, 2014 at 7 o’clock, the Spring Fling Dance at New Hope-Solebury High School commenced. The Middle School gym began to fill with students that evening, eager to shimmy with all of their closest friends.
The awkward first moments of any school dance quickly dissolved as the first attendees arrived, and were greeted by the enthusiastic dance organizers, Mask and Zany members.
Teenagers enrolled at the high school soon arrived in small groups, ensuring they were fashionably late enough to make a dramatic entrance.
Remixes created by the pair of Disk Jockeys, Ben Natan and Jacob McCloskey, pleased the students. Dance moves were busted in all sections of the gym.
“I liked the energy there and the massive number of people who showed up,” reflected a satisfied freshman Nina Coughlin. Coughlin, among others, was among the lucky few who stayed at the event until its predetermined end time.
Several groups of students chose to depart the dance early, perhaps due to exhaustion from the excessive dancing. However, it was the final portion of the dance that truly left a lasting memory.
As the hour grew later, the dance floor became even more energetic, as Mask and Zany members danced with fellow attendees. The last general admission dance of the 2013-2014 school year ended the year successfully.For underclassmen, the countdown to Homecoming Weekend begins, as seniors say goodbye to NH-S dances.
