Personally, I think that having dances at Salem Jr. is a good idea. It allows students to come hang out, listen to music, and have a good time. When students step into the school, they are now in a safe, monitored environment.
So many people complain that when they go to the dances, people ask them to dance and they don't want to get asked to dance. Well, simple solution. If you don’t want to get asked to dance, don't go to the dances.
The whole point of going to a dance, is to dance. If you're scared to dance with someone, face your fears. Dancing with someone is not as scary as it may seem. It's only awkward if you make it awkward.
The school has dances so that students can interact at school, without needing to learn. You can go to a dance even if you don't know how to dance. Most people go and just go crazy and have fun with it.
It’s not like a high school dance where everything is so serious. It’s meant to be fun. So if you're afraid or just nervous, don't be, just go and don’t worry about what others will think.
Salem Jr. is a great school and we have awesome school dances!
The next school dance is a tri-school dance with Mt. Nebo and Spanish Fork Junior Highs. SaJHS will host the dance on January 9th from 7 to 9 p.m. The dance costs $3. Students must bring a student ID card and not have any tardies.
