Teen Dance FAQs
Q: Who is the teen dance for?
A: Any teens (age 13-19) who want to enjoy music provided by a professional DJ and do some dancing.
Q: Can teens attend without parents?
A: Yes, in fact, only people between the ages of 13 and 19 may attend. Chaperones may ask for identification as proof that the person is between 13 and 19.
Q: Can family members that attended the family dance stay for the teen dance?
A: No. Only people between the ages of 13 and 19 will be allowed into the teen dance. Five chaperones and the teen dance chair person (Greg Callozzo) will attend to help keep the festivities age-appropriate. Of course parents can come and go as they see fit with/for their teen, but younger siblings are not welcome. Sound harsh? Then you probably don't have a younger sibling.
Q: What is "age-appropriate" for teens?
A: This is a highly subjective question, subject to individual judgment, but HECF strives to keep the teen dance "PG-13." Here are some general guidelines:
- Teen dance means "a social gathering where teens dance." So anything that any chaperones consider outside of that definition is subject to: 1) verbal request to stop, 2) a warning, and/or 3) ejection from the dance. Not necessarily in that order.
- Activities that will be discouraged include (but are not limited to) excessive displays of affection, fighting (verbal or physical), anything that could potentially cause injury to anybody or damage to anything, any activity that infringes on the rights of others to enjoy the Teen Dance.
- Teens: Respect yourself, others, chaperones, equipment, and the teen dance space.
- Teens: you are expected to pick up after yourselves.
- Teens: you are responsible for your own belongings. Keep personal items with you at all times.
- Proper attire – including shoes and shirt – is required. Anything normally covered by a swimsuit must be covered at all times.
- Disrespect yourself, others, chaperones, equipment, or the space, and you lose the opportunity to be in the Teen Dance.
- Parents may be held liable for any damage to others, equipment, chaperones, or space caused by attendees.
