November 2,1994 6 Campus Extras a^ ;zi a o bo !Zi Meredith dances the night away by Kimbcriy Zucker A transformation took place Fri., Oa. 28. The Meredith population was decked out in sparkling dresses, high heels, and make-up. A definite change from the sweatshirt attire nor mally seen in class. What was so spe cial about last Friday night? Meredith angels (l-r) Catherine Doughton, Mandy Steele, and Julia Rathbone prepared for an exciting evening at the White Iris Ball. Friday night marked the an nual White Iris Ball, sponsored by MEA. The theme, “Night on the Nile” was displayed throughout the Raleigh Civic Center. There were metallic good balloons floating around, a camel guard ing the door, huge pyramids beside the dance floor and tasty refreshments. Cindy Thornton, a sopho more, said, “1 was really impressed by the handwork that was put into the dance, especially with the decorating. My favorite decorations were the huge pyramids.” A lot of preparation did go into this year’s dance. MEA wanted this dance to be the biggest one ever. Each MEA member was required to sell at least 10 tickets, and tickets were on sale each day in the cafeteria. The tickets were $25.00 per couple, and $9.00 for a t-shirt. The t- shirts this year are long sleeved, with a colorful Egyptian design on the back. The band at the dance was Golden Touch. They played a variety of music ranging from beach music to the famous electric slide. The most interesting thing about the band were the women. Three ofthe women were dressed in long sequin gowns and re sembled the Supremes. Amy Wescott, a junior, said, “I thought that was band was okay, but I would have rather had a DJ. The music was okay, but it was really hard to dance to it.” Those who love to shag had a different opinion. Shelly McGirt, a senior said, “I thought the band was great. My boyfriend andI shagged almost the whole time.” Overall, most people seem to have liked the band this year. When they took breaks, they played dance music so there was a variety. On those breaks, most people took the time to check out the refresh ments. On top of a glowing orange table, students had a choice of water or pineapple punch.

This year’s White Iris Ball was a definite hit. Traci McLamb, a freshman said, “I was surprised at how many people were there. It was my first dance at Meredith, and I had a great time.
