Dance parties range from waltz and swing to hip-hop and club. Students arrange most events, including the Sock Hop, Masquerade Ball, Senior Essay Writing Party, the Spring Cotillion, and the recently invented One Hour Red Bull Dance Party.
Monthly waltz and swing parties are serious business at St. John’s. The year begins with the Convocation Waltz, where students decorate the quad with lights and dance all night. Fortunately, the Waltz Committee offers emergency dance lessons for the heretofore unexperienced.
