On October 25th, LCHS’ TACH program is hosting its first ever Halloween Dance. Previously hosted by the Bridge program, this year TACH has undertaken the honor of holding one of the school’s most popular dances. Although in the past, the Halloween dances have been full of excitement, the new change has excited many students.
Kyle Lee (11) revealed, “Even though I’ve always heard that the Halloween dances were super fun, I’ve never actually gone to one, but this year, I really want to try and make the dance.”
TACH stands for Teens for the Advancement of Children’s Hospitals, and members spend STEP classes once a week in order to fundraise and volunteer for, as the name implies, children’s hospitals. This year’s Halloween Dance will serve the same purpose, and proceeds will be directed towards Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Other TACH fundraisers include Krispy Kreme Donut sales, silent auctions, a TACH bash, and a carnival.
The organizers of the dance are excited about this year’s event. Christian Chung (11), Vice President and organizer of the dance, has high hopes for this year’s event.
“This dance is always one of the most popular of the year, and this year TACH hopes to bring the same enthusiasm for this dance that has accompanied it the past,” Christian said, “this always gives people the chance to dress up in wild costumes and have fun in a casual environment.”
With homecoming happening just a week before, it seems that La Canada High School may be going through a dance craze. However, dances do not appeal to all students here at LCHS.
John Hickman (11), said “I don’t really like dances. I really haven’t ever attended any, and I don’t plan on attending this one either.”
Although this dance promises to be one of the most exciting dances in a while, it seems that TACH, and anyone else hosting a dance, still have some work to do extending the reach of the dance to get everyone here at LCHS excited.
