“In Step” "At the Hop”

November 15, 2017

CIU students prepped for the annual winter formal with an evening of swing dance lessons and a little competition. To add to the fun, students dressed in “sock hop” fashion as if it were the 1950s. 

The winning dance couple was Josiah Anzenberger and Meghann Miller.

Anzenberger says he only learned to swing dance about a month ago and he says he “loved it right away.”

So when he and Miller won the competition, it was only his second time dancing. He says he was “very surprised to win.”

“Some other competitors were great dancers and I did not rehearse with my partner at all.”

That’s because his first partner had to bow out.

“I picked another dancer last minute.”

The winners were rewarded with some hearty dorm food: a box of Jolly Ranchers, Reese’s Peanut Buttercups and boxes of mac and cheese.
