Chagrin Falls Students Go Loco for Hoco

Chagrin Falls high school celebrates another Homecoming dance with a “Neon Night” theme on October 13.

The yearly Homecoming dance is a fun tradition where students can dress up and get together as an entire school every fall at Chagrin Falls High School.

Sharply dressed Chagrin Falls High School students stormed the cafeteria last Saturday for the annual and exhilarating homecoming dance. Accompanied by glow sticks and other brightly colored decor.


I think homecoming was more fun this year than it has been in the past! I feel like part of it was being an upperclassman and feeling more comfortable acting like myself and having a good time,” said senior Sophie Zitney.

The general consensus was that the students enjoyed the dance. As the students poured into the dance, the booming speakers could be heard all through the school.

“The DJ was #Epic,” senior Nick Disanto said.

The DJ was pumping out bangers like  “SICKO MODE” by Travis Scott, “Party in the USA” by Miley Cyrus, and “Africa” by Toto throughout the night.

The decor consisted of bright banners and dim lighting, complementing the glow sticks and beads given to everyone. Towards the end of the night, a banner was knocked down which caused a slight kerfuffle.

“I almost slipped on something that fell down, but I didn’t because I have incredible balance,” Disanto said.

The issue was resolved when the banner was picked up and placed where it was originally hanging. Although the dance starts at 8, the late arrival at 9:00 is very popular with students lining up to get in.

“The line was a little long, but once you got in there, it just got great,” Disanto said.

At the peak, the line wrapped from commons to the front door of the building.

The students funneled right into the dance floor where there was a DJ playing funky beats. Despite students loving the music, they felt he left something to be desired.

“The DJ didn’t really interact with students or the group at all,” Zitney said.

In the past, many DJs played songs that the students could dance to or they would talk on the microphone to hype everyone up.

“They saved the best songs for last,” junior Aly Miller said.
