“A lot went into planning the dance,” said Associative Student Body (ASB) dance commissioner Megan Guillermo.

The dance committee spent a lot of time choosing decorations, the venue, the DJ and much more.

Guillermo said, “We met with a decorator a couple of times and told him exactly what we wanted to see.”

Fox Theater was transformed into a winter wonderland covered with Christmas lights and fake snow.

Over 800 students attended the dance. Amelia Armstrong (another dance commissioner) said, “We were really happy with the publicizing, and the turnout of students.”

Students had a lot of feedback on the dance, and what they hope will improve for next year.

“I liked how everyone in the community came together to have a good time. Next year I think the DJ should play some better dancing songs rather than ones you can only sing along to, but otherwise it was a lot of fun,” said junior Gabriella Lehr.

The dance commission is already planning their improvement for next years dance.

“We would want to improve on organization of the dance because it took a long time for people to get into the dance because of security. We also want to improve the DJ because there are always complaints,” said Guillermo.

Even though 800 students is a rather large turnout, what about the other 1,000 or more Carlmont students?

“It is more of an underclassman dance,” said Senior Toni Lupilin.

To many restrictions on when a student can leave the dance seems to be the main reason for lack of participation.

“I took pictures with my friends, but I didn’t want to go because I was not sure if I would have fun, and I hate how you have no option to leave,” said junior Sienna Rigatuso.

Students are not allowed to leave the venue until 11:30 p.m. due to safety reasons, and the dance officially ended at 12:00 a.m.

Senior Lexi Jenkins said, “I hate that we can’t leave when we want to.”

This is an administration rule that has turned some students away from attending the dance.

Students wait in the lobby before the dance for the coat-check and pictures.
