Spring Turn About: McHenry High School, West Campus

The reason: Turn About 2010. The venue: McHenry High School, West Campus, located in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. The time: 8pm on a dark and rainy Saturday night. The theme: Neon Lights. The scene inside: a typical school gymnasium transformed into a pop dance club with Billboards top music pounding out through speakers, flashing lights crawling the walls and floor and projection screens playing the hottest videos.

Neon Lights: now there is a super cool concept for a high school dance. It’s fun, bold and begs for creativity with dress attire. While many high school dances are full of teenagers wearing fancy dresses, high heels and costume jewelry, the Neon Lights theme of this school dance proved itself to be anything but. Girls and boys alike wore bright neon leggings, shoes, and home made shirts with fluorescent colored puffy paint, short jogging shorts, skirts, head bands and even spray painted neon hair.

A highlight of the night was the photo booth provided by Photo Booth Express. Standing tall with a neon pink curtain in the hallway near the entry of the school and gymnasium, lookers were turned into patrons and kept returning throughout the night with new friends, boyfriends/girlfriends and anyone else the kids could cram into the booth. This “must have” for any school event (Prom, Homecoming, Turn About) provided fun, entertainment and a token memento of the evening for the kids.
