Top 10 things to know about NightGlow

Second annual NightGlow


Students huddle in Gym B dancing at the first ever NightGlow, Jan. 25, 2013.

10. NightGlow will be held from 9-11 p.m. Friday, Feb. 21.

9. Wear white or neon and join the excitement by attending the varsity girls basketball game at 5:30 p.m., and the varsity boys basketball game at 7 p.m., in Gym A, preceding NightGlow. Remember to bring $5 for admission to the double header, unless fans have a sports pass for free entrance. The doors for NightGlow will close at approximately 9:30 p.m.

8. One of the main attractions of NightGlow is the black-lit dance floor. This year Gym B will be lit with 15 black lights, so the neon/white-out theme from the basketball game will turn fans into dancing glow-sticks.

7. Tickets are $5 and will go on sale starting, Tuesday, Feb. 18, at all three lunch periods. The sales will end once tickets are sold out, so get in line early. Any remaining tickets will be sold for $7 at the door to students with a student I.D.

6. Plan on bringing a friend from a different school? Be sure to get a guest form at lunch or in the office and turn it in by Feb. 19. Guest forms will not be accepted at the door. 

5. NightGlow has completely reinvented the “winter dance” with more lights, a bigger house and the largest sound system in the history of EHS dances, making it an entirely different experience from previous Turnabouts or winter formals.

4. The original masterminds behind the first NightGlow were Alex Powell, class of 2013, and Adam Culbreath (12).  The legacy lives on through NighGlow 2014 chairs, Samantha Powell (11) and the returning Culbreath.

3. One of the many highlights of NightGlow is the upbeat, modern music, and this year is no exception. Student DJs, Adam Hindman and Chet Montefering (12) will ignite the gym with heart-pounding beats creating the ultimate dancing atmosphere.

2. After taking care of the night’s immediate expenses, all proceeds from the dance go towards StuCo and StuCo scholarships for seniors.

1. “I think the number one thing that students are excited about is actually going for the first time,” Culbreath said. “I’ve tried to change the skeptical public opinion into realizing that this dance is actually going to be really fun; the lights and sound will make the crowd feel like they are at something huge.”
