On Wednesday, Feb. 15, the cafeteria was transformed into a Valentines-themed dance hall for the FAC, FFC, and FOC students. The dance, which was set up by Student Council and Peers Inspiring Creativity (PIC) Club, allowed students from across the district to attend and partake in an opportunity to build camaraderie.

“The dance is for the FAC, FFC, and FOC students in the whole of RRISD,” Student Council Executive Secretary Sheevani Talati ‘24 said. “We were able to create an opportunity to make everyone included while enjoying an unforgettable night.”

Students were able to create Valentine’s Day cards at their tables to give to those around them. Students mingled with each other, taking photos in front of themed decorations.

“The Valentine’s dance is the combined effort of the PIC Club and Student Council and there were lots of fun songs and food,” Shreya Nampoothiri ‘24 said.

The music began, and the dance floor was quickly overrun by students dancing to songs like Happy, Party in the House, and also The YMCA. Line dancing began with Footloose, Cotton-Eyed Joe, and Cowboy Cha Cha, as all attendees participated. The dancing ended with a conga line encompassing the entirety of the cafeteria as they danced to the last few songs of the night.
