Dewey Dance helps fund financial aid

To raise money for the school, parents and members of the Lab community will hop into Kovler Gym March 9 for the Dewey Dance wearing their Urkel glasses, “Clueless” costumes, trendy kicks, and other ‘90s apparel.

Bel Canto members will perform a series of pop songs, straying from their usual genres. To best fit this year’s theme, their performance will include Nsync’s “Bye Bye Bye,” Will Smith’s “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” and the Spice Girls’ “Wannabe.”

Director Charlie Abelmann said he hopes the Dewey Dance will create better relationships among parents and faculty, and raise money for student financial aid.

“Tuition doesn’t cover the full amount of what it costs to educate students,” Dr. Abelmann said.

The primary sources of funding for the dance are the $90 tickets and corporate sponsorship. Raffle tickets are $25, which offer a variety of prizes such as free tuition to Summer Lab and parking spots.
