Concordia hosted its annual fall dance last week and at its peak – around 10 p.m. when the DJ played “Uptown Funk’” by Bruno Mars at full volume – dancers were screaming the lyrics and jumping up and down.

The Student Activities Council hosted the dance, which has been a tradition for the past several years.

Freshman Grace Donnelly said her favorite part of the dance “was that the DJ played good music, which was nice!”  The music was a “mix between older and newer songs (Emma VanTol),”  she added, and there were some line dances interwoven with the peppier songs.

Cristina Schmidt, another freshman, said that her favorite part of the dance was “starting and leading the conga line!”

“The line dancing was the best part! Especially ‘Boot Scootin Boogie’,” said Bethany Gebhardt.


There was no specific dress code for the dance, and people wore a wide spectrum of outfits, from jeans to casual dresses to a chicken costume. A popcorn machine with hot popcorn was available with an assortment of other snacks.

SAC provided a photo booth and props for students, as well as balloons that students tossed around while dancing.
