What are some good sock hop themes for younger teenagers? My son's junior high school is holding a sock hop for their kids, and I'm in charge of the sock hop decorations.
They said they want it to be a little different from the normal 50s sock hop, but not extreme or adult in nature.
You have to be careful with junior high kids -- they'll either stand on the corners and not dance at all, or you end up with a ton of drama. Most usually both. And we don't want to exacerbate that with the theme.
For instance, we're afraid that if we do just a classic 50s sock hop then nobody will want to dance, but if we make it too outre, then parents get upset and kids get all hormonal.
So what would be some innovative, yet not adult, sock hop themes?
Any ideas, fellow wisegeekers?
