Snowball

November 16, 2021

The annual Snowball dance will be happening this year, although it will be a little different than previous years.

The dance has been moved to February 12 from 8-10:30 p.m. 

Moving it back two months gives us extra time to prepare,” Head of Student Council Hunter Lambright said. “We don’t know what things will look like in December, but with the dance’s original date about a month away, it seemed too soon to do well and safely. We all agreed that we want to have Snowball this year, and that meant pushing it back to make sure we can do it correctly and safely, in a way that doesn’t take the fun out of it.” 

Last year’s Snowball was canceled due to the uprising in COVID cases during December. That’s what the worries are about it being in December this year as well. Moving it back allows for a more safe dance. 

“Depending on how the rise and fall of COVID-19 cases are going, we may have extra precautions in place, masking or otherwise,” Lambright said. “Our ultimate goal is to have a dance where students can dance the whole time, even if that means we have to get creative.” 

The Snowball had originally been in February years ago.

“While we may use this to play with the themes so that it is a little different than our usual snow theme, this is actually more of a return to tradition, than a departure from normal,” Lambright said.
