Winter Formal

Clare Connolly '14

Christmas is quickly approaching. That means Starbucks’ holiday cups, endless Christmas music, and the highly-anticipated Winter Formal. Although the dance is scheduled for after we return from Christmas break, the holiday spirit will still be alive and well. It’s an opportunity to dress up, dance, and hang out with friends. The Winter Formal is a tradition at SI that everyone should experience.

When asked about her experience at last year’s dance, sophomore Mia Casey said, “It was really fun and I had a good time. It's always fun to dress up too! I recommend it to any current freshman because it's a fun experience that you'll always remember!”

When it comes to dance time, there is always one unnecessary added anxiety. The date. Although there will be many couples and dates at the winter dance, going with friends is just as fun! Not being asked or wanting to ask someone should not be a deterrent from going to the dance and having a good time. Kelsey Bauer ’17 said, “The winter dance sounds really fun! I don’t feel pressured about getting a date because if I don’t get asked, I can just go with my friends and still have fun!” This dance will be a great way to kick off the second semester. Mark your calendars for January 25, 2014!
