High Schoolers are often described by adults as dramatic, to which many teens will object, but after experiencing your first school dance you will soon learn the truth of these adults judgements. The high school dance can make or break a relationship. Teens will plan for weeks on end to ask the perfect date, and have the perfect night. This planning can sometimes result in a super romantic night or a terrifying night of awkward conversation. School dances are steeped in tradition and often have fun themes like disney.

Responses are usually in a similarly silly way, and generally saying no is frowned upon unless it’s absolutely necessary. Next comes the day date which is a date you do before the dance with a group of people. The dance itself is fairly anticlimactic, and is mostly just dancing in a half lit room with your date. The culmination of this evening is the doorstep scene this is the moment that can make you a legend remembered by students for years to come or it can be the single most embarrassing moment of your life.
