Attention girls! Gals! Ladies! Senioritas! It is now your turn change the social norm of the guy asking the girl to the dance. So that means, pay attention, boys! Gents! Fellas! Senors!
When is the dance? Saturday, February 11 from 8:00-10:30 pm. Where? EHS cafeteria, and admission is only $5 at the door! Even if you want to come solo or with a group of friends, that is okay too! Everyone is welcome to come and get their funk on! Student Council member Karly Lawrence spared some extra information on the dance. “I think the girls should just start asking guys now and just go for it, because that’s what this dance is all about.” She also mentioned, “Some guys think that if they don’t get asked to the dance, they would feel weird just going with a group of friends, but that’s totally okay! Everyone is welcome to come with whoever they want.”
The dance is referred to as “Ice Versa” because a winter dance has been a reoccurring trend at other schools in the area, where it is also known as “Snowcoming.” The cafeteria will be garnished in snowflakes and will be strung with sparkling lights to give the area a bit of winter sparkle. The theme for the dance is completely casual, but you are free to wear whatever you may like! Nonetheless, the Student Council also hired DJ Hymz to electrify the dance floor!
Sophomore Lexi Grober is one girl who has already asked senior Ryan Fogle to Ice Versa. She smiled as she explained her idea. “I was trying to find a way to ask him to the dance where I could do it in front of people and get a good picture, so that people would know how I did it and hopefully get them thinking.” Lexi actually found her idea to ask Ryan off of Pinterest! She made a poster that quoted, “So excited to ask you to the dance that I actually P’d my pants, and actually taped golden P’s all over her pants. Hopefully the way Lexi asked Ryan to the dance lights a fire in all the girls, gals, ladies, and senoritas at EHS to ask a boy to the ice versa dance!
