Dancing the night away for one last time.

Seniors recently joined with their peers for the Class of 2018 dance.

The dance was held on May 21. Students joined with teachers and administration to celebrate graduation and friendship. They enjoyed the next day off and got to recuperate.

The Frazier History Museum hosted the dance from seven to 10 p.m. Monday. The dance is held on the rooftop every year, with a view of downtown Louisville. “It was such a pretty sight,” said senior Sydney Rames.

Teachers and administration also got the chance to dance alongside students during the night. “It seemed like everyone had a lot of fun, especially once it became night,” said Spanish teacher Maddie Mann.

Some seniors even got the chance to snap a picture or two with Chris Mason. Included in the pictures was senior Austin Craft, who runs the popular comedy account “Massive Mason.” “It’s awesome that he’s cool with the comedy account, it’s been a fun experience,” said Craft.

“Mr. Mason is really approachable. He’s always willing to do fun stuff with students like take pictures. It’s cool that we have a chill principal,” said senior Dalton Weakly.

Overall, it seemed that students had a great time. Many students enjoyed how it was just the senior class. “It was a fun night that I’ll remember, and it was good to only see the senior class unlike prom,” said senior Andy Lutz.

Senior Lindsay Brock agreed. “The senior dance was by far one of the most memorable events of my high school experience,” said Brock.

Other students also noticed how fun the dance looked. Cole Laslie, a senior at Oldham County High school, was sad to have missed out on the night. He moved schools the beginning of his junior year, and wasn’t able to celebrate with his friends on Monday. “The dance looked like a lot of fun,” said Laslie.

The next day students were off for election day. This allowed the perfect opportunity to continue the fun with friends. “I got to skate and play video games all day with my friends,” said senior Tristen Preston. He noted that he enjoyed being able to sleep in after not getting home from the dance until around 11 p.m.

Many underclassmen are looking forward to their Senior Dance in future years. “Senior year is coming so fast, before I know it I’ll be walking the line. It’ll be fun to enjoy that dance with my friends,” said sophomore Shelby Knieriem.
But, the fun isn’t over. Seniors have two more events to look forward to in the coming weeks: graduation and the Project Grad lock-in that night.
