The homecoming dance is one of Coronado’s best traditions, and is always an overwhelmingly popular event. With so many people attending, it can be easy to get swept up in the excitement of the night and forget to be courteous to others. However, there are a few general guidelines as to what to do and what not to do when at the homecoming dance.


Buy your ticket beforehand, as buying a ticket at the dance can be a hassle and is more expensive.

Make sure that your outfit is dress-code appropriate. Dresses and suits must agree with the dress code.

Request music! Chances are, there is someone else in the crowd with similar music taste, and the dance is more fun when a variety of music is playing.

Come to the dance with a good attitude. Everyone prefers hanging out with someone who is happy to be at the dance.

Have fun, and enjoy spending time with your friends or your date.

Dance! There are only so many homecoming dances to attend, make the most of each one.



Wait until the last minute to do anything. Everything will go easier if plans for tickets, driving, outfits, and dinners are planned ahead of time, and that way there is no need to rush or panic on Saturday night.

Even though the dance is not during school hours, school rules still apply. Don’t disobey school rules because you’re here at a different time of the day.

Dance or act inappropriately during the dance; it’s disrespectful to the other people who came to have fun.

Have a bad attitude. That really makes the dance less fun for everyone, especially yourself.
