The winter dance is coming up, but is it all fun? Are people's feelings getting crushed with mere words? Are peoples thoughts about the dance different than they say? This article explores the opinions of the youngest generation at OSA about the upcoming winter dance.
As I interviewed a few 6th graders I found out pretty much three things about the winter dance: Thumbs up, thumbs down, and thumbs in the middle.
Everybody had their opinions. To start off the interviewing was Alicia Shaw. The first question I asked her was if it bugged her that the dance was in November instead of December and being called “The Winter Dance."
“Well… I think it should be ‘The Fall Fest’ or the ‘Thanksgiving dance’ or something,” Alicia joked. “And people asking each other. Oh that drama. It’s fine. It's not even that big a deal.”
I asked her if she thought that people should be able to un-invite other people to the dance.“No! Of course not!” she said. “That's so rude and disrespectful! That could really hurt someone's feelings. A lot. Everybody's feelings count.”
I followed up, should we even have a dance? “Yeah, were mature enough.” after I asked her if she would ask anybody, her “pro” position changed a bit. “Um… I don't think so. There is way to drama around that… rumors, stories and gossip. You know. I'm going to go though. It's gonna be a good experience.”
Cleo Menconi, another person I interviewed, said the same thing. Almost. “Yeah I'm going to go. There might be food.” she said. I asked her what she would wear, and she replied “Hmm… I guess something casually formal.”
Two other sources said the same thing. The third just replied “I don't know. Clothes.” Thanks, Anika. She also gave me another great answer to “what are your feelings on people asking each other to the dance?” “I'm disturbed.” Let's give a round of applause to Anika Lande’s answering skills. Thank you, thank you I'll be here all article. Ahem.
According to my sources three out of four of the people I interviewed would go later than when it starts. When I asked them if they liked dancing I got diverse answers. “No, I have social anxiety and im super self-conscious,” Anika said.“Yeah! It's fun!” said Alicia, and finally a “depends on the mood and type of dancing…” from Cleo and another source argreed. Well, that concludes my interviewing article. Stay tuned peeps!
