On October 30th, Samueli Academy held their second dance of the year in honor of halloween! It wasn't just an ordinary dance, ASB also organized a madhouse maze which was meant to be spooky and scary for the students. After long planning and hard work, ASB had a much better outcome than expected.
“I was an igniter, so I got to see what was happening behind the scenes,” said bryanna gonzalez, a Junior. ASB gathered about 20 students who volunteered to stay after school to contribute to help prepare for the dance which were called “igniters”. ASB had very little time to complete everything that needed to be done, but with a lot of help from the igniters, it was able to come true.
ASB put a lot of effort into the dance. “They worked really hard on the dance and the madhouse. The last few years, it wasn't as scary and real, but this time they went all out,” said Makenna Percy, a Junior. The outcome of the Mad house was exceptional, as ASB observed, people were actually getting unexpectedly scared!
“The outcome was very well. I wish the mad house was was a little more scary, but progress is progress, and hopefully next year will be even better,” said Lauren Castaneda, a Junior. ASB previously had a small haunted house which was not as successful as this year's mad house. This year's mad house had several people scaring, several haunted rooms, and a lot of scary decorations. Because, this year our school has grown, there were a lot of new people who came to the dance. The dance floor was always full of young teens enjoying the music.
The dance was a fun way to celebrate halloween with school friends and old friends! “I saw everybody I missed at the dance and the environment was fun,” said Kelly Elsperman, a former student of Samueli Academy.
The mad house was a great way for the dance to get started and get the students pumped for what was later to come! “The mad house was my favorite part, it made it more fun and interesting,” said Jessica Villela. The mad house meant to scare people and get them pumped for the night. After the madhouse, students had options to dance. One club even took the opportunity to sell food during the dance. It was an exhilarating dance showing lots of potential for the years to come. Stay tuned to see what ASB has for us next.
