Get ready to put on your dancing shoes on Feb. 8 as the annual Greenwood Community Center Valentine’s dance returns.
Mr. Nick Schwab, events coordinator, expects everyone to have a great time.
“We expect our guests to have a really great time. We want them to have fun and really enjoy the night,” he said. “It doesn’t matter if you come alone or with a group of friends.”
The doors are open to anyone who wishes to attend as long as they purchase a ticket.
“We were planning around the majority of the kids being somewhat younger and they bring their parents,” Mr. Schwab said. “However we are allowing anyone to come as long as they buy a ticket.”
He encourages those people who have never been to the dance before to try it out.
“A lot of people don’t feel like they should go alone or they have never been to a public dance before. I feel those people should at least give it a shot,” he said. “You might even end up finding a friend and be more willing to participate in the community.”
Freshman CJ Meyer is contemplating going to the dance for the first time.
“I think it sounds really fun and like it will be a really great time,” he said. “I’m not quite the dancing type, but I think it would be worth giving a shot.”
The dance will last from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Community Center. Dress is casual; however, you can dress up if you wish. Tickets are $2.50 a person and can be ordered online or picked up at the center. Included in the price are complementary drinks, snacks, and for younger guests, arts and crafts.
