Of the day of lights low, lanterns glowing in the night sky, met you at the entrance a river with flowers guiding you to your final destination: the dance. Along the river, a rowboat greets you in a convincing  scenery to have your picture taken. At the end of the river, a vine arch wanders over your head creating a beginning to the dance floor.  

Eyes of amazement look to Pascal’s tower, as he opens his doors to present his glamorous dress. Saturday, September 30th at 7:30pm – 10:00 pm was the night of 1,402 glowing students dancing away with their joy.  Let’s give a hand to Leadership, NAHS, & and the chaperones for their assistance in guiding the attendees. The NAHS spent days before painting Pascal’s Tower & the night of the dance they quickly put up the decorations. Along with the arts done by the NAHS, they also host volunteer opportunities doing art that can be used towards community hours.  

In the night, songs sprang hands waving side to side, individuals jumping up to the beats of Die Young by Ke$ha and Apple bottom jeans by Flo Rida and many more. A conga line emerged, circling the room, and running swiftly through the crowd. At the end of the dance, as is school tradition, Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond was played.  Crowds came together, sang their hearts out, and in chorus the voices sang in sync.  In the dance’s ceaseless night, of the end to Sweet Caroline, students began to leave feeling joyous and excited for the memories they shared and memories captured by the Peak.
