Music and Santa Barbara High School Dances

My eyes slowly peel open like the tinfoil lid of a Blueberry Yoplait. Ah, nice. It’s a Saturday morning and tonights the big night so I better make sure i’m mentally and physically prepared. I start off with some calisthenics to warm up my mildly tempered body but then get hungry and seek my mom.


My mother prepares me a healthy breakfast which provides the fuel crucial for the next couple hours and I am grateful for that cause its a shame to skip the most important meal of the day. I scan my phone and it becomes apparent that it’s already midday so I should get-a-movin if I wish to have a nice full day. I roll over to the appointed pre-game house, Taylor Robins, and with some other fellows such as Ryan Murphy and Jaelen Keel, we begin the pre-partay.


Other friends are present at the event but I dont deem it necessary to name them. After a few hours of various activities we order ubers to the main attraction of the night, Winter Formal. We all mob onto the dance floor like a bloat of hippopotamuses and immediately I break out the moves. Bing, bam, boom, slam! We are absolutely tearing up the dance floor and everyone knows it.

fullsizer I look over and I see Jaelen throwing down some other worldly vibes that I just cant even explain in words. The music hits my ears like sugar to the tongue and my body just wiggles to the beat. I approach the DJ, who seems like he mixes mainstream music in his mom’s basement and I request some Flaka. He said he’d play it but not one Waka Flaka Flame song came on so he should be expecting a thrashing on yelp when I get the time. Besides that little conundrum the dancing and music was exceptional. Dancing cannot be originated from one civilization or time because it is as natural as walking and eating. We need to dance to survive and this Winter Formal rejuvenated my love for dancing to music. As the dance progressed I began to wear and after about a hour I periodically hit the floor but not nearly as hard as those first 60 minutes. I might not attend the next Winter Formal but I suggest that all students at SBHS do at some point in their career.
