Glow sticks and black lights will be part of the overall atmosphere at the Glow Dance on Feb. 23.

Student Council is hosting a Glow Dance at West Chicago Community High School on Friday, February 23.

The event, a fundraiser for Prom, is still in its planning stages, and was delayed by three e-Learning days in January.

Student Council freshmen and sophomores, as well as advisers Krysta Schoenbeck and Jen Culbertson, are taking the lead on planning the Glow Dance, which will be held from 7-10 p.m. in the Bishop Gym and is open to all grades. 

“We will have a DJ, photo booths, glow sticks, and everything neon,” sophomore Student Council leader Jessie Myers said.

The dance takes the place of Turnabout. Because of the use of black lights, the dance has a more “casual” vibe, according to Myers. Students are encouraged to wear white t-shirts “because they glow in black light.”

“I’m excited for it. It’s a new thing for me,” sophomore Erica Navaro said.

Tickets will be sold for $20 in cash and $22 with a credit card. They will be sold in the bookstore or an online store opening soon. Tickets will be sold until 3:00 p.m. on Feb 23.

“No tickets sold at the door,” Myers said.

Student Council welcomes existing members – and anyone interested in pitching in – to join the upcoming meetings, held Tuesdays in room 2448 at 7:20 a.m.

“At these meetings, we make announcements, find decorations, and plan logistics for the dance. We would [also] love for Wildcats to help us, especially with decorating on Friday, February 23 after school,” Myers said.

    If the glow dance doesn’t open with “Call Me Maybe,” we’ve got a serious problem on our hands.
