Waltz, Swing & Dance

Annapolis 2016 Valentines Waltz
Students enjoy a waltz party in the Great Hall.

Dances at St. John’s feature themes ranging from traditional (waltz and swing) to modern (hip-hop and club).

Students plan most on-campus parties and events, including:

  • Masquerade Ball
  • Sock Hop
  • Senior Essay Writing Party
  • Spring Cotillion

Waltz and swing parties are beloved traditions at St. John’s in Annapolis. The academic year begins with the Convocation Waltz, where students decorate the quad with outdoor string lights and dance all night. No need to worry about being an experienced dancer—the Waltz Committee offers “emergency” dance lessons to all students ahead of time!
