The homecoming dance on Oct. 14 is a cause for immense excitement at Davis High. The dance will run from 9 to 10:30 p.m. in the South Gym with tickets costing $10 with an ASB card and $15 without.
The theme for this year’s dance–voted for by the school– is Haunted Homecoming due to the fact that the homecoming game will occur on Friday the 13th.
To keep up with the spooky theme, there will be plenty of scary decorations, such as cobwebs and fog machines. There will also be a photo booth where students can take pictures home as souvenirs.
Junior Savannah Whitehead is part of Student Government and is very excited for the upcoming dance.
“I’m looking forward to getting ready for the dance and taking pictures with my friends and also seeing the dance finally all come together after all the hard work our class put into it,” Whitehead said.
The Parent Teacher Association will be supplying all of the snacks and drinks for the dance while the DJ will play a variety of music including suggestions made by students in the student government classroom.
Student Government is excited to show off all their hard work.
“The dance is going to be so hyped, everyone should come,” sophomore Cariappa Kodira said.
In the midst of all the planning Student Government has done for the dance, DHS students have also been making plans of their own regarding clothes and hair.
Maddie Fitchner, an employee from Pinkadot, recommends curled hair using a hot tool for girls and gelled back hair for boys.
For clothes, Fitchner believe that girls should “probably [wear] a dress with finer material such as silk or velvet.”
On the other hand, SPCA thrift shop employee Tona Gonzalez recommends a more natural look for girls. She believes a pencil skirt with tights and ankle boots would be optimal.
E street Salon manager Jose Gomez suggests a classic and clean look for men’s dressing.
“Hair-wise on a man, probably something a little more finish. For woman, I’ll say half down but it depends on the dress,” Gomez said.
Jennifer Carlos, another employee from the SPCA thrift shop, thinks homecoming dresses should be less formal than a prom dress with hair up, and boys should consider wearing a button up with slacks and slicked back hair.
