In a parallel world, you are having the time of your life and in an alternate time, that date you both turned down truly was love at first sight. Saturday night students had the opportunity to live in an upside down moment at Morp. At Morp, the girls ask out the guys and everything goes well. But, not everyone thinks Morp lives out to be more potential than Prom itself. A few days before morp Danielle (19) said, “Morp is lame even though it’s equality for girls to ask out the guys”. She said she appreciates the effort of letting girls ask boys out, but really it’s just all about having fun at a dance.

Eaton High School hosted a traditional Morp dance on Feb. 24. Hosted by FBLA, the dance brought back a new norm of girls asking guys out. Inspired by a “Dynamic Duos” theme, many students came with iconic duo costumes like Batman and Robin. Over 100 students attended the dance, showing off their matching outfits with their friends. An activity that blew the roof off was FBLA’s version of Minute to Win It, and three different activities interrupted the music to get students involved. One of the activities was that each player put a spoon in there mouth and had to move a ping pong ball across the room without dropping it on the floor. The next activity was a game similar to cup pong, where students had to bounce ping pong balls into solo cups before their opponent. Finally, three students participated in a game where they had to shake tic tacs out of two containers glued to a stick with just their mouths. Winners of each activity received gift cards as a reward. Shelley Tregoning said, “Next year Eaton will be expecting another Morp because it turned out so successful”.  

Last year instead of morp, a spring dance took place around the same time in February. The theme for the spring dance was Glow in the Dark, but FBLA decided on a Morp this year and hoped for success. And it did prove to excite many enthusiastic students. One of the members in FBLA attended both last years spring dance and this years Morp. Cheyenne (19) said, “I loved Morp this year more than the spring dance.” She explained that she didn’t dress up for the theme but stayed the last 30 minutes to clean up after the party.
