Spend a night dancing in the jungle

Joshua Gaston | Thursday, March 1, 2012

The time of year has come again for a night of weekend dancing outside of the dorm room. Yes, the campus-wide ballroom-swing formal has returned. This year is a throwback to the first one of these held, which was held in the Knights of Columbus building by the gracious assent of the knights. This year it will be there again this Saturday. March 3rd from 9 p.m. ­- 2 a.m. If you have a dorm dance, come beforehand and get the legs warmed up.

Now remember this is campus-wide so anybody is welcome to this event, it only costs one dollar if you are not a due-paying member. For due-paying members, it’s free; join the clubs next year you’ll save two bucks for the year. Also, this is a formal in attire, not bring-a-date formal. I’ll be there stag for one, so any girl looking to rumba, waltz, swing, foxtrot, salsa etc, you know you’ll definitely have a lead for that.

And for all you boyfriends, this is the way you get classy without breaking the bank. So girls, throw on that breath-taking dress, and guys, dust off your dress shirt and tie. The theme is jungle, so interpret it as you will.

P.S. Happy 5th Birthday. Adam Llorens.
