On Friday, April 7th, Mt. Greylock students celebrated the final high school dance in the current gymnasium before renovations and construction get underway. The Mt. Greylock gym teachers and threw a 50s style “Sock Hop,” both to help fund the National Parks trip and as a send-off to the gym that has been home to over fifty graduating classes. The dance also served as a culmination of “dance week,” in which gym classes learned both modern and old-timey dances, from folk-style line dances, such as the Virginia reel, and basic partner dances, like swing, to new-age moves like the Wobble. Many of these choreographed dances were busted out over the course of the night. Because of this, the Sock Hop was a bit more organized than the typical mob-scenes that one can see at Homecoming or Snowball. Additionally, the concession stand, which served root beer floats and other various goodies, was popular among attendees. In a crowd predominantly consisting of underclassmen, students packed the beloved gym for one last time on a memorable night. While attendance was not as high as other dances this year, those who attended were treated to a fun night with their friends.
