Sister to Sister- School Dances

During the school year, a lot of girls go to school dances. Most middle schools and high schools have dances, where students can dress up and have a great time. Sometimes dances have unique and interesting themes, such as a princess theme or an ocean theme. At my high school, the Homecoming dance is coming up. A lot of people have been talking about the Homecoming dance. Some of my friends are planning to go to the dance, and some of my friends are busy with other things. Some people don’t like dances, which is totally okay. No one needs to go to a school dance. However, many girls have fun at school dances. For me, school dances are a great excuse to dress up like a princess and have fun with my friends. I think that if you want to go to a dance, the most important thing is to have fun.  

The first school dance I went to was during my Freshmen year of high school. I went to the Homecoming dance with three friends. Before the dance, we hung out at one of my friends’ house and helped each other do our hair and makeup. Then, we went to the mall, got dinner at a restaurant, and went to the dance after that. I didn’t go to the Homecoming dance last year, since I had just moved to a new school. I didn’t know anyone during Homecoming week, and my Homecoming dress was still in storage. Because of this, I went to dinner with my family instead of going to the dance. However, I’m planning to go to the Homecoming dance this year, and I’m really excited. I’ve made lots of new friends now, and they’ve told me good things about the Homecoming dance.

Some of my friends go to school dances with a date, but you don’t need a date to go to a school dance. A lot of people go to dances with friends, which is just as much fun. This year, I’m going to the Homecoming dance with my friend. I’m looking forward to seeing my friends at the dance, taking pictures, and having an awesome time.

If you’re going to a school dance, one important thing to remember is to make sure your feet are comfortable while you’re dancing. If you don’t want to dance in high heels, you might be able to take them off at the dance. A lot of girls don’t wear high heels while they’re dancing. At my first Homecoming dance, I wore new silver high heels. They were really pretty, but they kept slipping down my feet. I had to pull the straps back up every few seconds, which was really annoying. But I was worried that if I took my shoes off, I would lose them. This year, I’m going to wear sparkly, high heeled boots that won’t slip off. If you want to take off your shoes when dancing, I would recommend leaving them in a safe place where you will be able to find them when the dance is over.

Another important thing to remember is to not worry too much about how you look. At my first dance, I had a lot of fun dressing up and having my hair and makeup done. However, I still felt insecure, like I wasn’t pretty enough. Back then, I didn’t understand that dances are supposed to be fun, not stressful. It’s great to dress up and wear makeup, as long as you remember that you are beautiful no matter what you wear or how much makeup you wear. In fact, you don’t need to wear any makeup at all if you don’t want to. Having a good time at the dance is more important. People will be so focused on having fun, they won’t be judging anyone.

If you’re going to a dance this year, have an awesome time! Comment below to tell us about your school dance stories.

  • I'm homeschooled, so we've only ever had one dance, and it was at my co-op, it was SO weird. No one dressed up, people mostly sat around, some people danced... and .... I brought some toy lightsabers. Um. Yeah, that was actually pretty fun. A lot more people ended up playing lightsabers than dancing, and we had a sort of tournament, and I won. It was great, and there were zero dates, no one worried about that stuff. I'm going to homeschool high school too, so I do't know if I'll ever go to any real dances. I don't care though, I don't like dancing. This is a really good article. :)
  • I am super nervous about attending my first homecoming dance this year, so this article was super helpful! Thank you!!!
  • Quick question, do you know if I could go to my friend's school's prom, even though it's not my school and we just want to forget about dates and go have fun?

      You can probably go to your friend's prom, depending on her school's policy. Usually, schools have a guest pass that you and your friend will need to fill out and sign. Ask your friend if she can get a guest pass from her school :)
      • Thanks. :)

  • it’s true. if you are addicted to the internet & (or) websurf. it can cause severe cyber bullying, viruses, and extreme hoffic content (mostly ads) and somtimes tracking. Some good ways to prevent this on the open internet(in my opinion) are

    1. Do not look up random things

    2. Research an online community before you use it. (Not all sites are like NMG)

    3. When signing up for something, do NOT skip the terms of service , or the privacy policy. EVER.

    4. You have to be able to turn or log off the site during servere drama, if it’s against another person get an adult.(severe bullying directed at you for example)

    5. Don’t use the internet as a mask, for yourself. ( don’t spite against others even if your
    Offended or angery, etc...)

    6.have etiquette

    7.dont ask for personal info

    I hope this helps
    (I’ll edit later.)
