Dance Party Mayhem

By Lucy Vay (Los Angeles, CA)

In an act to relieve SJP students from the stress we are all feeling as our newspaper deadline approaches, the counselors spontaneously planned a flash mob dance party that took place at approximately 11:36 PM in room 16 at the Friend Center. We were all told to stay in the room, while the counselors convened right outside the door. I actually thought that there would be a meeting regarding our articles and the layout of the paper, but it turns out I was wrong.

Everyone was sitting in room when music started playing and the lights started flickering on and off. The counselors traipsed in and immediately started dancing around the room. All the students had looks of confusion on their faces. Did the counselors go crazy? Aren’t we supposed to be the ones so stressed that we can’t form coherent sentences? They call that dancing?

We all started catching on and students started abandoning their articles so they could join in on the fun. Everyone seemed to let loose as we danced in a circle around the room throwing our arms up in the air and laughing hysterically.

Though it only lasted a few minutes, it was a moment when we all let go of our responsibilities. However, after it was over, everyone went back to work. After all, we have a paper to put out.
