Senior Wednesday Night Dances


(Senior Wednesday Night Dances)

A highlight of the Senior Wednesday Night Dances at The Lakes at Hemet West is the various themed dances: the attractive Clubhouse is decorated accordingly, while the dancers enjoy dressing according to the themes.

This year will feature themes such as Denim and Diamonds; Disco; Valentine’s Day (celebrating couples that met at the dance); Mardi Gras; St. Patrick’s Day; Cruise Night; Westerns; Cinco de Mayo; Safari Night; Flag Day (Senior Prom, semi-formal); Jump, Jive, and Swing; Sock Hop; Hollywood; Luau; Roaring 20’s; Halloween; Veteran’s Salute; and a Harvest Ball (semi-formal).

The Disco Dance originated in Discotheques, formed after the early 1940’s in Nazi-occupied Paris where nightclubs (called “discotheque” in French) presented radio “disc jockeys” (or DJ’s) who played jazz records when Nazi laws prohibited live musicians. Appearing in the United States, the music became popular with Jazz, Funk, Soul, Pop and Salsa type music fans (young men and women of minority races from different backgrounds). The term discotheque and disco also suggested a short dress worn in nightclubs, and by 1964, Disco-type music, popularized by Playboy magazine, was recognized in the United States and Europe between 1977 and 1979, lessening in the early 1980’s.  It has remained popular in aerobic exorcizes, theme parties and retro-themed nightclubs, with loud and energetic music, along with colored lighting effects.
