Williston students took a chance to hide their identities last Saturday night (Feb. 19).

Williston students went to the Dining Hall for a night full of dancing incognito. The dance, billed as a “Masquerade Ball,” was requested by Williston students, so Williston’s in-house school spirit squad, The Wildest Cats, put it together, with help from Ms. Davey.

A lot of time and thought goes into planning the Masquerade Ball. A few Wildest Cats and faculty chaperones helped set up the Dining Hall while Davey was at a girls varsity hockey away game.

“Shout out to Fiona Bundy, Jack Phelan, Mika Sovjani, Madison Fulcher, Max Livingston, and Thomas Thibault,” said Davey.

A member of the Willison’s Wildest Cats, senior Mika Sovjani, helped decorate.

“Decorating the dining hall was actually fun,” Mika said. “I hung up the streams by the floors and set up all the masks on the tables and it took little over an hour.” Senior Max Livingston also said, “I helped set up the lights around the dining hall and on the floor. I also unraveled the balloons and put them on the ceiling.”

Sage also had part in planning the dance. Davey had to meet with members of Sage to arrange the food items, communicate with and hire a DJ, and buy decorations and masks from Amazon.

“[Amazon] Prime is clutch,” said Davey.

The dining hall was decorated with a lot of lights and black, gold, and white decorations to  “class it up a bit,” Davey explained. She dded that the roughly 60 balloons on the ceiling “was a nice touch.”

The dance started at 8:00 with DJ Eddie O. The dining hall started filling up with dressed up students around 8:30, that is when the dance, according to Max Livingston, became “lit.”

Davey states that these dances “bring the community together. They’re fun, and who doesn’t love music and dancing?”

Senior Lizze Cuevas told The Willistonian she enjoyed the masquerade ball, and that for her, “the best part was getting ready with all my friends, taking pictures and dancing to the music.” She added, “These dances give me a time to meet new students and socialize with people.”
