Grab a swatch of neon paint, tighten the black bandanna around your arm, and get the black war paint under your eyes.
In just a few short weeks, Glenbard East High School’s Senior Leaders and BOOM Entertainment have planned their March Madness Blackout that was on March 20th, 2015. Weeks were spent planning to try and create the most amazing atmosphere possible for Glenbard East High School students. A week prior to the event, Student Council had created a magnificent poster board that displayed their excitement for Boom Entertainment’s sponsorship of the event.”We are all so excited and pumped. This event is absolutely unreal,” said Samantha White, Senior Leader group member.
Unlike traditional school dances, March Madness was created to be a casual-dress atmosphere and to be more centered around having a good time.”This is something completely new and it makes me so happy,” Mary Kurtz said. With the lessened stress on formal wear, students were able to get super creative with their black (out)fits and integration of neon for the blackout. With blue-dyed eyebrows and hand prints of glow in the dark paint, all the students pushed their creativity to have the best blackout attire. Morph-suited student, Brian, said “I definitely think I’m the best dressed for the blackout tonight”. Towards the beginning of the show, Brian was able to debut his morph suit on stage to the Harlem Shake.
With Boom Entertainment’s own DJ Metro and Dj Ay Jay, the night was filled with great dance hits and amazing drops. All throughout the night, glowsticks, glow in the dark foam pieces, and beach balls were thrown into the roaring crowd. With students getting onto stage with incredible dance moves, the energy was an all-time high all night.
Robbie, a senior at Glenbard East High School, had a featured performance during the night with his amazing beat-boxing talent. “I’ve been doing it very seriously for about three years now and I absolutely love it.” Cheered on by all of his peers, Robbie had a great performance piece to really kick off the night.
Glenbard East High School sure left their mark as a grand finale for the myBOOMtour: Winter Edition.
