TWIRP, also known as the Sadie Hawkins dance, was originally started to push women to go after the men they wanted instead of waiting around to be noticed. TWIRP stands for “The Woman Is Requested To Pay,” and Northwest Guilford High School will be throwing one this year at Bryan Park.

Some schools have been having TWIRP for a long time, and it dates back all the way into the 1950s. Northwest just recently started having a dance where the women ask the men, and a portion of students really like it!

“I’m really looking forward to the idea of a dance because we don’t have homecoming here,” sophomore Val Orozco said.

Northwest Student Council is making this dance possible by planning it for the students. Last year, some students were worried that no one would go to the dance and the whole thing would not be as they expected. They thought about the attendance at homecoming in years past and how it started to drop right before the idea of TWIRP was introduced to the school.

“After successive years of losing money on homecoming dances, we had to look for a new dance outlet,” Senior Kyle Tharrington said, “Our first TWIRP dance last year was a very successful one, and we hope to continue it for years to come.”

Many of those who have bought their ticket are looking forward to the atmosphere and the sweet treats the dance provides. The theme for the dance this year is “Frozen Paradise,” and a number of girls have already picked out their dresses so their outfit would be harmonious with the theme.

“I can’t wait for the food at TWIRP,” freshman Mckenzie Durant said, “My dress will most likely be blue.”

The dance will be on Jan. 20 at 8:00pm in Bryan Park. Tickets are on sale in the commons area on Dec. 14, 15, 18, 19, and 20. The tickets cost $20 for a couple and $15 for a single ticket. You can pay in cash or check, which can be made out to NWHS PTSO.
