On Saturday, October 16, 2010, Lowry students converged at the school for the Homecoming 2010 dance.
The line was long as excited students lined up, anticipating the night ahead. The night went fast, as most of the people there were dancing to the upbeat songs that most people knew.
They sang the songs they knew, and enjoyed classics such as “Cotton-Eyed Joe” and the “Cha Cha Slide”. There was music from many artists, including Lady Gaga, Usher, 50 Cent, Lonestar, and Ke$ha. Music was provided by West Coast DJ.
Attendees cheered as their classes were called, keeping the energy high throughout the night. The energy was almost tangible as students tirelessly jumped around the gym. Friends new and old came together when the beats slowed down for the slow songs. Students swayed to the mellow music, and then slowly got back into the high-energy spirit as the beat picked back up.
The fact that the Bucks won their Homecoming game against the Fernley Vaqueros added to the happiness and joyousness of the night, which added even more excitement to the night’s activities. The dance was seen as a type of celebration for the Lowry students. Regardless of any student’s reasoning for attending the dance, it stands to reason that everyone enjoys themselves there, powered by the high-intensity music and their friends’ urging to dance with them.
