Another dance checked off! This one was very easy (as the last few have been). I see that kids today want to take selfies and videos while jumping up and down. This doesn't leave many hands free for groping. There are no couples--girls dance with girls, black boys dance with black boys, and white boys run around with balloons or eat food. Line dances are universally popular and Michael Jackson is still a hit.
In fashion news, a colored dress shirt is a must. Lots of black with a bright tie (think red or purple) or Easter egg colored shirts with a black tie. Turquoise, pink, orange, etc. A few vests, bow ties, or suspenders. Pants are skinny right now (Is there a term "pegged" for that narrowing at the ankle?)
Girls are in frothy dresses with lots of layers and tulle. Colors like peach, champagne, pink, baby blue, mint green. Some look inspired by the Lupita Nyongo red carpet looks of the past few seasons. Only a few short, tight and trampy. Much more princess-y.
A good time was had by all. Previous generations used to get more sentimental and cry and hug at the end of the dance. I guess they had grown up together and some were going to Vo-tech or private schools for the first time. These kids are easy, breezy. Just grab their shoes and phones and head out into the night with a "see ya"!
That's the news on the youth culture of 2015.
