“Through the Stars” Sweethearts Dance
The annual Sweethearts dance will get underway, Saturday, February 5th from 8-10 p.m.
As February, the month of love dawns, students are thrilled to participate in the yearly Sweethearts dance. As usual, it is a girl’s choice, but this year masks will be required.
The dance is Saturday, February 5th from 8 – 10 pm in the Commons. The dance is semi-formal and dress code protocols are in place. Tickets are available for purchase for $7 ($14 per couple) on Alta’s website or $10 ($20 per couple) at the door.
Sponsored by FBLA and FCCLA clubs, this year’s theme is, “Through the Stars,” and will be evident from the silver moon and star decorations all over the commons,” said committee member Savannah Barlow.
As Covid-19 numbers begins to rise again, dance goers wonder what precautions are in place so the dance happens without a hitch. The members of the FCCLA are asking that masks are required, in order to keep the dance running on schedule.
“Masks will be required while the faculty will be roaming around to make sure masks are being worn,” Barlow said.
In addition to masks, the dance committee wants people to spread out to maintain some social distancing and prevent the making the dance a “spreader” event that would cause Covid case counts to rise at school.
To ensure this happens, dance organizers have altered the playlist so that there will be less opportunity for students to form a mosh pit, Barlow added. They also took away the concessions and food.
There will also be a photo booth for students to enjoy. More information about how students will receive the photos will be available at the dance.
