Hips thrust, girls swoon, and senior Robert Hart takes a few selfies. The third quarter honors convocation was capped off with what has become an annual tradition; the senior boys’ dance. The performance began with the Elkhorn Dance Team performing to Kesha and Pitbull’s song Timber, but soon the boys took over with lots of hip thrusting.

“I was good for probably the first half of the dance then I kind of just winged it,” senior Jacob Carlson said.

The seniors practiced before school for the week leading up to the April 11 assembly. However, some seniors did more to prepare for the twerking and hip thrusts.

“I just watched as many Shakira videos as possible,” senior Austin Seagren said. “I enjoyed working my body in provocative manners,”

The senior boys were not the only ones who enjoyed the dance.

“I was laughing so hard,” senior Kami Marshall said. “I think I was laughing the whole time because none of them could dance.”

Elkhorn High School doesn’t just have students on honor roll, but also, a group of boys who love to twerk.
