How to survive a dance from a girl's perspective


How to survive a dance from a girl's perspective

Hey Hawks! (written by 7th grade leadership girls)
Your palms are sweaty, you don’t know what to wear, but don’t worry! We’re here to help you survive your next dance....from a girl’s perspective. Here are a few unsaid rules. First off, no sport shorts. This is not basketball practice....we don’t care if your mother has to dress you, just no sport shorts. And ladies, this is not a wedding, no five inch heels or strapless dresses. It’s breaking dress code and just. not. practical. Okay so, people, we know all of our students are amazing, but this is middle school, no freaking. Please. Save us the scars and save your pride, ok?
Now some tips for your slow dance. Girls put your hands on your partner’s shoulders and boys, put your hands on your partner’s waist. Do these simple things and it’s not as scary as it sounds. Do not put your hands anywhere else. I’m talking about  boys and girls. Next for the slow dances, if someone asks you to slow dance and you don’t want to, turn them down nicely....but the best thing to do is to say yes. Even if you don’t like them, they deserve respect. Please for everyone, don’t try to make awkward convo while you’re slow dancing. Remember, these are just our opinions!
Now we have some school rules and your biggest tip of all. First of all, no freaking! I know we said this before but it’s against school rules and more importantly it makes some people extremely uncomfortable, so it’s worth repeating. This is still at school so you still need to be dress code. They do hand out PE clothes if you are violating dress code. and really, who wants to spend the whole night in those things?! what happens if you take pics with your friends and your in your PE clothes. It doesn’t make you look cool, and you’ll feel really self concious. if you get concessions, don’t go overboard. You don’t want to spaz out on sugar high especially if that cute classmate of yours is there. Lastly, the most important thing of all, the biggest unsaid rule, be yourself. You are awesome and perfect just the way you are and you don’t need to have someone ask you to dance or have to be in the group with the  “popular” people. Just hang out with your friends  and have a good time. That’s the most important thing of all.

  17. I will definately follow those rules! I had no idea how to slow dance and was secretly really nervous/scared. I also was making sure that nobody was going to be casual, because I was looking forward to wearing a nice dress, and some nice shoes!!!

  18. I totally agree!!! If you be yourself, then you'll have the best time ever. Cause if your not, then what is the point of going anyway? You came to the dance to have fun, not to worry about your looks, and to worry about who to dance with. Don't waste your time worrying, waste your time having fun with your friends.

  19. Great advice! The first dance is middle school seems scary, I mean everyone is watching you, and what is you embarrass yourself. But like you said, be yourself, and the dance should be a blast.
