What better way to bring in the semester other than good music, digital lighting, music videos, and dancing? The dance team will be hosting the spring semester’s welcome back dance.
Due to issues in the past, the rules and regulations for hosting dances have changed. For example, bags will no longer be permitted. Unfortunately, students in prior semesters have abused that by bringing in alcohol and illegal substances.
Another rule that has been applied is there must be at least two staff or faculty members in attendance. This is in hope to monitor student behavior and help with any conflicts that may arise.
Public safety will also be there. As a regulation of hosting a dance, all clubs or organizations must hire public safety officers to ensure safety at all times of the dance.
No matter what, the purpose of hosting dances is for students to have a good time. Although there have been more rules added, the dance team hopes everyone will still have a great time. “The new rules aren’t there to ruin anyone’s fun. “We just want everyone to be safe.” sophomore team member Amie Roetz said.
Junior team member Alexis Drew has been working really hard to make sure everything at the dance goes seamlessly. “We ordered a water cooler so that no one gets dehydrated. “We want everyone to dance and have a great time,” Roetz said.
The dance team is excited to finally host a dance at Cabrini. “This is a great opportunity for the team to have fun with the students on campus and fundraise,” sophomore team member Cortney Hanson said. “We obviously love to dance so we hope everyone will come out for it,” she said.
Disc Jockey John DiNardo will be there providing music and a great time. “I’m bringing my intelligent lighting and music videos. It should look awesome,” he said.
With new safety precautions, great entertainment, and extra attention, the team hopes Saturday will be a great success. “I actually can’t wait. I love going to dances and being with my friends and team. Saturday I get to do both,” sophomore Katie Duffy said.
The dance will be held from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Saturday Jan. 24 in Grace Hall.
