You walk into the Watertown Middle School at 7 p.m. and right away you can’t hear yourself think anymore.

There’s music blasting in your ears and loads of people shouting at their friends just so they can hear each other.

The smell of pizza and soda lling all of our noses with a strong, good scent. We’re all packed together, making it really hot, even though it is cold outside.

The first school dance of the year was the Neon Light Dance in October. It was DJ’d by Brian Donato, who made a good selection in terms of songs that people requested.

Shakel Inniss, an eighth-grader, said, “The dance was good and fun, but definitely not as good as the other ones.”

Humanities teacher Chris McDermott, one of the chaperones, said he liked the song selection and compared it with other dances.

“Only about 90 people in the whole school didn’t show up to the dance,” he said.

Throughout the three hours of sweat and dancing, it’s safe to say everyone had a great time and is looking forward to the next dance. It was definitely a new and fun experience for many sixth-graders.

Overall, it was a creative and fun event, and most of WMS can’t wait for the next one.
