Snapshots from Snowflake: 2018 Winter Formal
From the moment students began lining up at the main entrance in anticipation of being frisked, to the last minutes of dancing, singing, and chatter before the strike of 10:00pm...all of it, the whole evening, in fact, was abundant with an excited energy. Not even the heat of sweaty teens, a shortage of cups, or even technical difficulties with the music could waver students' enthusiasm. This was especially highlighted, when, at one point, a circle of students began to belt out the karaoke classic of "Price Tag" by Jessie J after the music had suddenly quieted...the moment was truly a testament to the carefree attitude to the night. As a whole, the entire event consisted of the sort of spirit that could be only be emulated "after-hours" when dance-goers are no longer students but teens just trying to have fun beyond the social pressures and stresses of school work. The efforts of student and staff volunteers alike as well as the strenuous planning, organization, troubleshooting and "crowd-hyping" on Student Council's part is not gone without notice. They're what essentially fostered the stress-free fluidity of the night. Ultimately, it was the excitement and personalities of the people that truly shaped the 2018 Winter Formal into a night to remember.
