Back to school boogie welcomes freshmen
This past Friday, Fairview students dug up their bell bottoms, geared up their disco dance moves, and shimmied the night away at the back to school informal dance. The dance, which was ‘70s themed, was put on by the Knight Crew in honor of the incoming freshmen. Yet it was far from only freshman who showed up for the shindig. The small gym was packed and humid from eight to eleven, and filled with the sounds of pounding music and shouting students.
For many of the freshmen, their first time dance was fun, but overwhelming. Freshman Alana Rosler described the scene, saying, “There’s like this huge body of people, and you’re just standing there going: where do I dance?”
Merritt Lealman, Knight Crew coordinator, was working the door. Though she didn’t know an exact figure, she said they believed up to 500 people showed up for the dance.
In the aftermath, the overwhelming response to the dance was enthusiasm. Antonio Houck, freshman, said, “It was fun because it wasn’t formal.” Not to mention the fact that, as freshman Keiran Driskell said, “Seniors like freshmen.”
