Palo Alto High School’s 2017 winter dance theme centers on a throwback to 2000’s music, and takes place at the Mitchell Park Community Center from 7-10 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 24.

The theme features popular music from the late 2000’s and early 2010’s, including songs from the Black Eyed Peas, Usher, Katy Perry and Maroon 5, making this dance stand apart from past dances. ASB members and seniors Isabel Black and Joao De Pina came up with the theme together.

“We just decided to have a dance that incorporated [a] throwback to middle school songs to reminisce on middle school days,” Black said. “These songs really hold a special place in people’s hearts… so if we bring those back, it will just pump everyone up.”

Rocko’s Ice Cream Tacos will cater the event, along with other snacks and desserts.The success of CREAM, a local ice cream store, that catered at a PALY homecoming dance a few years ago inspired ASB Social Commissioners to have Rocko’s Ice Cream Tacos cater the dance.

Tickets for the winter dance can be purchased on the PALY ASB Webstore for $5 with an ASB sticker, and $10 without.
