ASB hosts throwback dance at the Mitchell Park Community Center

Paly’s Associated Student Body (ASB) held their annual Winter Dance at the Mitchell Park Community Center on Feb. 23.

After last year’s “Highlight the Night” theme, this year the theme was “Middle School Throwbacks,” with only 2000s music played at the event.

The songs played at the dance included, “I Gotta Feeling,” “Sexyback,” “Gold Digger” and “Crank That (Soulja Boy).”

“We chose it when we were narrowing down from a lot of different potential themes and it was our favorite,” said Isabel Black, senior co-Social Commissioner. “We just thought that it would be so fun to reminisce on our middle school days.”

Along with middle school songs, ASB also provided free ice cream tacos. “The ice cream sandwiches were so good it made my taste buds go boom boom pow,” said senior Tommy Smale.

The turnout to the dance was also a pleasing surprise to both ASB and students.

“The dance went well,” said Joao-Gabriel Carvalho De Pina, senior and co-Social Commissioner. “It was a good throwback to the middle school days. The turnout actually exceeded my expectations and everyone seemed to be having a great time. The best part was the dance of course but the ice cream tacos were definitely superb as well.”
