Scrunchies and neon attire filled the dance floor as the Class of 2020 hosted the first dance of the school year on Friday, Sept. 13. The annual back to school dance was ‘80s themed, and the cafeteria was lined with bright colors, cassette tapes and other classic 80s paraphernalia. A total of 140 students attended the dance.

Senior Class President Vaughn Battista said he is proud of all the hard work the entire senior class council put into this event to kickstart the year. 

“Preparing a dance can be a bit stressful and chaotic, but it’s all worth it when you see how much people enjoy themselves,” Battista said. 

The songs ranged from current chart-topping artists like Ariana Grande and Travis Scott to ‘80s pop stars like Queen and Madonna. 

Sophomore Drew Lepping of West Long Branch liked the dance but thought the music choice, although on theme, was lost by many attendees. 

“It was pretty fun because I got to dance with my friends, but the playlist wasn’t good because a lot of the songs that they played nobody knew,” Lepping said. 

Senior Abby Tellechea of Monmouth Beach says that she enjoyed attending the event that her class hosted. 

“The dance was really fun and I thought the theme was really good this year,” Tellechea said. “The work my class did turned out great, they put in a lot of effort and I think it showed.”
