Halloween Dance Dos and Don'ts

The Halloween dance is an annual event at Le Moyne that is loved by all. It’s a night to let loose, forget about the stress of midterms, and be someone else for a change! Read on for our top ten tips of how to get the most out of the Halloween dance.

  1. DON’T: Get there too early or too late! If you show up right at 9, chances are you’ll be the only one there, and it’s no fun dancing by yourself! However, if you show up too late you’ll have missed half the dance or worse: you won’t be allowed in. Then you won’t have to worry about the rest of this list! 
  2. DO: Get creative with your costume! The dance is your chance to really get into the Halloween spirit. A lot of people go all out for the dance, so be as festive as you want! 
  3. DON’T: Drink too much. While it’s no secret that many people party before the dance, it’s also no secret that many people get transported to the hospital after the dance. Don’t be one of those people. You also don’t want to make your friends babysit you all night, or worse, get them kicked out of the dance along with you because you got sick. 
  4. DO: Take a ton of pictures! The Halloween dance each year will probably be some of your best memories with your friends at Le Moyne! Make sure to memorialize all the fun you had and your cute costumes. 
  5. DON’T: Wear an offensive costume. Even though you might not think your costume is offensive, it could very well be to someone else. Make sure to always be respectful of other people’s cultures. On this note, also make sure you’re not just wearing things like underwear or banana hammocks to the dance; remember that it is a school event. You can be sexy without going overboard. 
  6. DO: Invite your friends from other schools. Everyone is welcome at the dance! You’ll want to share this experience with the less fortunate who don’t have the privilege of attending Le Moyne. 
  7. DON’T: Go alone. You’ll have the best time at the dance when you get hyped up and go with your best friends! Also, you will definitely want to utilize the buddy system tonight. You never know where the creeps are; especially when they are in costume. 
  8. DO: Get into character. Create a backstory for yourself, get props, and really get into your role! It’s your chance to be someone else for a night; take advantage of it! 
  9. DON’T: Try to give attitude to the people working the dance. Although they may seem like an annoyance, they are there to keep you and everyone else safe. Treat them with respect. 
  10. Do: Take care of those you go with. Although no one wants to be stuck on babysitting duty all night, take care of your friends who might need you, because you know they would do the same thing for you!
