Gettin’ Fancy for the Dance-y

Okay, I went to my fair share of dances in high school, and they were alright, but I never expected to go to one in college. To be honest, the original reason that I decided to go to Winter Fantasia was because it was a great excuse to get a fun new dress. Then, my boyfriend, Larry, said that he would come up and visit so that he could go with me, and I was sold. I didn’t go to Fantasia last year, so I didn’t really have any idea what to expect, but I knew that it was at the incredible Amway Grand Plaza Hotel, so it was going to be swanky. Toss in a Great Gatsby theme, snacks, and planning by the ever-excellent Hope SAC, and I knew I didn’t have too much to lose.

That was an understatement.




What a dapper gentleman, am I right?

Winter Fantasia blew every dance I’ve ever been to out of the water. I had so much fun with my boyfriend and my friends and a great DJ and a great facility and the great city of Grand Rapids. I am so thankful for Hope SAC and the awesome events that they always put on. From Spring Fling to Winter Fantasia and concerts to Upright Citizens Brigade and everything in between, they do an awesome job. I am always super impressed by their events! It’s awesome to go to a school where I’m never bored – there’s always something interesting going on, and Winter Fantasia might just be my new favorite.
