It's all 'Backwards'

Because the La Cañada High School Backwards Dance has not been off-campus in over a decade, Backwards is going to be an exceptional and unique dance.

The “girl-ask-guy” Backwards dance will be at the Atrium, which is in the Wallis Annenberg Building at the California Science Center near USC.

Backwards is from 7 to 11 p.m. March 22.

This Paris-themed dance is titled “City of Lights.”

The theme, location and court were announced on Feb. 21 in the La Cañada High School quad during break. The court includes one freshman, one sophomore, two juniors and three seniors, all of whom are young men, due to the fact that this dance is backwards.

The Senior ASB has been planning Backwards since last year when they began searching for an off-campus location. Nobody wanted it to be in the North Gym — again. Hosted by the Senior Class of 2008, Backwards will be impressive and a ton of fun, especially at its exclusive location.

The Atrium is a science center for private classes only — it is not a museum open to the public. The Atrium overlooks the rose garden at the Science Center, creating a great photo opportunity. The dance floor is right next to the beautiful bamboo forest. There are open skylights, giving the Atrium natural air conditioning.

If students need a break from dancing, they can request refreshments at the bar and lounge or take a stroll through the bamboo forest and walk around this one-of-a-kind Atrium. Within the forest is a small pond, where students can observe turtles and tadpoles.

Whether a first-timer or a seasoned dancer, this is the dance to go to because of its remarkable location. There'll never be another chance to go.

Tickets are $35 per person, which is only $15 more than the regular dances in the gym.
