Answers to the most popular questions students have been asking about the Sophomore Dance have been answered in time for the occasion, which will take place this Friday, May 6. 

Sophomore Class Vice President at Fairfield Ludlowe High School, Matthew McKinnis, explains, “The dance starts at 7:00 and ends at 10:00, but students can come as late as 7:30, and can leave at 9:30.” Students will not be allowed to arrive any later or leave any earlier, as it is mandatory to remain in the small gym until given permission to depart at 9:30. 

Sophomore Class Secretary at Fairfield Ludlowe High School, Taylor Mehta, states that “around 330 students have purchased tickets.” This is a greater attendance than previously expected by McKinnis. He had estimated that “at least 250 people will come,” before the sale of tickets took place. 

A professional DJ will be present, taking into consideration the “playlist compiled based on student suggestions,” McKinnis states. Additionally, food and drinks will be provided such as bottled water and snack bags. 

Students were given permission slips to fill out declaring they will not consume any food or beverages that are prohibited on school grounds. McKinnis states, “Students can buy tickets for $20 on May 2nd-4th in the Cafeteria during all lunch waves,” if they had agreed to these conditions. 

A popular topic of discussion among students is in regards to attire. McKinnis says, “There isn’t a specific ‘dress-code,’ but we are advising that students wear something relatively formal.” It has been gathered that dresses knee-length or shorter and blazers are an expected, but not essential, form of attire.

If students are debating on attending the dance, Mehta encourages students to take part in the event as, “This is our first-ever high school dance and a great way for the student body to socialize after a 2 year pandemic!” McKinnis agrees, stating, “It’s going to be a night of fun. We have a DJ, photo booth, snacks, and even if you don’t have a date, you can still go with friends! We hope to see many students there.”
