Ah, the esteemed tradition of the school dance. Who could forget the painstaking amount of time you spent preparing for it? Picking out your ensemble, deciding which scent of Gap perfume you would wear, choosing the perfect type of body glitter to accent your collarbone, the preparation was endless. All of this, just so you could go hang out in the school gym and do all the things a '90s cool girl did at school dances.
It was never really about the dancing, was it? More often than not, it was about seeing people and being seen. A chance to don a hella cute dress while hanging out with your best friends? Priceless. A chance to play it cool with your girl gang while your crush stood less than fifty feet away? Even better. Whether you were the quiet one in your friends group or the life of the party, there's no denying that you piled on all the butterfly clips in anticipation of all the group pictures you were going to take. You crowded into a minivan with your nearest and dearest, and walked into school on a Friday night ready to create memories that would last you the rest of the weekend.
If any of these actions strike a nostalgic chord, then chances are you were on of the coolest girl at your school dance back in the day
